Hold Fast Till He Comes….

Hold Fast Till He Comes….

But that which ye have already hold fast till I come

(Revelation 2:25).

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.

The Lord is my strength and my

shield; my heart trusts in Him,

and I’m helped and energised.

He has begun a good work in

me, and I’m yielded to Him to

perfect His work in, and through

me now and forever, in Jesus’

Name. Amen.
