Hold Fast Till He Comes….
But that which ye have already hold fast till I come
The Lord won’t ask you to hold fast to that which
you’ve received if there wasn’t the possibility
of losing it. For instance, people lose their healing; they
receive healing from God and after sometime, maybe
due to carelessness or not walking in the Word, they
lose the healing. So, as a Christian, it’s important you
stay in the Word. The Word of God is your life, and
every day presents opportunities for you to live-out the
Word; to keep the faith and maintain your confession
of who Jesus is and all He means to you.
Nothing should ever make you take your gaze
and focus off the Master; He’s all that truly matters.
Protect your love for Him, and your passion for the
Gospel. Love the Lord selflessly, with an undying
passion. Refuse to allow anger or bitterness douse
your zeal, fervency, and effectiveness in ministering
to others. Hebrews 12:15 says, “Looking diligently
lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root
of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby
many be defiled.”
Imagine a Christian who was fervently involved
in soul-winning, and suddenly stopped winning souls;
became cold about the things of God, because
someone offended him. All the while he was winning
souls and establishing the kingdom of heaven everywhere, there was a crown of righteousness
awaiting him; but because he stopped, he’ll lose it; someone else is going to get it.
Don’t let anything quench your love and passion for the Lord. To see someone else doing what the Lord had told you to do which you didn’t do, is one of the deepest pains in life. When God called Saul to be king of Israel, He promised him an eternal dynasty, but he
lost it, and David got it. Don’t take the privilege of your service to God for granted. In Luke 19:40 (MSG), He said, “...If they kept quiet, the stones would do it for
them, shouting praise.” Whatever He’s deposited in you, whatever responsibility He’s given you, hold fast to it, for the end of all things is near. The Word of His grace and
His salvation has been communicated to you. You’ve been endowed with the ability and grace to lead
people to Christ, unveiling to them the mysteries of the Kingdom; keep at it; there’s a crown of glory waiting for you at the end.
I press on toward the goal to
win the prize for which God,
in Christ Jesus, has called me.
