To Hold Fast
| Christian friend,
now that you are "in Christ," you must hold fast if you get to
heaven. It takes boldness to become and remain a Christian in a world
where God, morality and every decency is vilified by atheists, humanists,
evolutionists, politicians, entertainers, the media, educators,
celebrities and even religious leaders. To be a Christian you must
"swim against the current" of our time!
Therefore, brethren, be strong! Stand fast in the Lord! Speak the truth with love and boldness as the early Christians did. Be not ashamed of the faith! Fight the good fight and put on the whole armor of God.
Ultimate spiritual victory belongs to the faithful. "Hold fast your confidence (boldness) and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end" (Hebrews 3: 6).
