We Must Do It

  We meet temptation. We are provoked by enemies of the cross. We are challenged because of our faith. We are pulled one way then another. How shall we meet these things and not be led astray or fall by the wayside?

  Through teaching and persuasion we are able to fight the good fight many times. Often we are pushed to temporary defeat by the force and size of the opponent. But rather than surrender any truth we must be willing, ready and able to STAND. This is not to be stubborn in our own way, but we must be stationary and persevere in God's way. We dare not backtrack from God's revelation. Regardless of the cost or difficulty involved when "push comes to shove" (as is often the case) we must heed the apostolic admonition given in epistle after epistle, STAND FAST.
