The Confidence and Need to Persevere

"And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister." (Col 1:21-23 ESV)
If it is true that the saints will persevere to the end, then it is equally true that the saints must persevere to the end.  Peter T. O'Brien, Colossians, Philemon, WBC, p. 69
