Heb 6:10-15 God’s not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.12 and do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, 14 saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” 15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
Heb 10:35-39 therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. 36 For you have need of (patience) endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise Js 5:11 Indeed we count them blessed who endure.
