There are some things in life that we hope to only once: graduate high school and get married are two examples that come to mind.
Some things happen occasionally. I go to the dentist every 6 months. Each year, I have a birthday and I pay my taxes.
The Bible says that some things should happen continually, or all the time. Here are a few of those things:
“Through [Jesus] then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.” (Hebrews 13:15)
“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it.” (2 Timothy 3:14)
“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 4:2)
“Let brotherly love continue.” (Hebrews 13:1)
Let’s keep these things in front of us not once or twice or occasionally, but every moment of our lives.
