On what do we base our confidence of persevering in the faith?

My wife and I read a book with the above title, and would like to share a few thoughts from the preface.
I have wondered if the way we practice church gatherings is too attendance-based to prompt much opportunity for meaningful fellowship and mutual love.
Community is built into Christianity, much like smartphones are made to be hooked into the internet.
Advent, it turns out, is not about the countdown to Christmas
“If you pray for us, you will pray for the wrong things . . . “
It is easy to get used to being comfortable at church, to being ‘entertained’ in a mild sense of that word. Even though we might feel a little sheepish about this, it is not something we would hurry to change.
Perhaps our experience of church has not been as rich as we would hope, or maybe we just don’t even know what Christian community could be.
Sometimes (I confess) I have thought it would be nice if Christianity was more of a “civic” religion.
The pursuit of godliness is meant to be done with others with sincere and active faith.
