HOLD FIRMLY TILL THE END


Hebrews 3:14


"We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first." NIV


"For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end." KJV


As Christians we understand the concept of sharing in Christ. That is becoming one with Him, being filled with His Spirit, and sharing in His heavenly glory. Our sincerity and commitment to be united with Jesus Christ will be revealed at the end. We will be found with the first love, zeal, and commitment we had at first, or our love for Him will have faded and become tarnished with the ways of the world.


Heavenly Father, we thank you and praise you for the wonderful love and zeal you place in our hearts when we ask you into our hearts. Help us, Lord, to keep the fire of our faith burning as it did in the beginning so that we may be found holding firmly to that first faith we had in the beginning. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Yes! We are to occupy (do business) until He comes. I want to be faithful to do just that.

Smiling and waving,
