‘Stay the course’ is an old phrase used in the context of warfare, meaning to pursue a goal regardless of any obstacles or criticism. 

To ‘stay the course’ is to continue doing something until it is finished or until you achieve what you have planned to do.
‘And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart’ (Galatians 6:9).
God pre-ordained us for service, even before we were conceived (Ephesians 2:10; Jeremiah 1:5). It’s God’s desire that you serve your generation according to His will, before you leave this world. It is required that we serve the Lord with gladness (Psalm 100:2).

Service is your destiny! Service is giving… service is living… If you’re not serving, you’ve lost the essence of life.

Each of the trees mentioned in Jotham’s parable, (Judges 9:8-15) represents men in different capacities, accepting responsibilities in spite of their challenges and affecting their generations for God in diverse ways.

You must utilize every God-given opportunity or platform you have, for service…

The heart of service (a burning passion for good works) births diligence in you.
Diligencehere, connotes self-governance, hard-work, perseverance, industry, proven dexterity (Prov. 10:4; 12:24, 27; 2 Peter 1:5-7). 

Furthermore, it leads to hope.
Hopeis a feeling of expectation. It requires waiting… (Romans 8:24-26).

‘And we desire that each one of you shows the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end’ (Hebrews 6:11).

The moment you come to the full assurance of hope, you no longer become sluggish, but you imitate partakers of the divine nature (the promise).
Furthermore, hope births faith in you.
‘…Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for…’
Faith connotes absolute trust in the integrity of God’s Word… It’s the assurance that God’s Word will never return to Him void…

and the faith blossoms to patience.
Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or overwhelmed with anxiety. 

Hereafter, you step into the inheritance of the promise.
