'Endeavour' in the Bible
"Strain every nerve to force your way in through the narrow gate," He answered; "for multitudes, I tell you, will endeavour to find a way in and will not succeed.
This too is my own earnest endeavour--always to have a clear conscience in relation to God and man.
And from this we learn that everything is dependent not on man's will or endeavour, but upon God who has mercy. For the Scripture said to Pharaoh,
Let each of us endeavour to please his fellow Christian, aiming at a blessing calculated to build him up.
We endeavour to give people no cause for stumbling in anything, lest the work we are doing should fall into discredit.
Let it then be our earnest endeavour to be admitted to that rest, so that no one may perish through following the same example of unbelief.
