You Won’t Be Sorry

I’ve always found myself comforted and encouraged by Luke 21:19.

It doesn’t matter what translation of the Bible you choose; this verse captivates my soul.  I’m reminded that whatever my circumstances, no matter who it seems is hurting me or leaving me, no matter what is happening in the world, no matter what the news might say, whether good or bad… If I stand firm in Him, then I win.

By standing firm, you will win your souls.  (NLT)

Stand firm, and you will win life.  (NIV)

By your [patient] endurance [empowered by the Holy Spirit] you will gain your souls.  (AMP)

By your endurance you will gain your lives.  (ESV)

In your patience possess ye your souls.  (KJV)

By your patience possess your souls.  (NKJV)

By holding fast, you will gain your lives.  (CEB)

By your endurance gain your lives.  (HCSB)

And a paraphrase that really brings it home…

Staying with it—that’s what is required. Stay with it to the end. You won’t be sorry; you’ll be saved.  (MSG)
