Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
(Hebrews 4:14 (NIV))
Do you hold firmly to your faith?
I want you to give me, actually, I want you to give yourself, an honest answer to the following questions.
What do you do when money is tight and your car breaks down?
What do you do when you get fired from your job?
What do you do when you are faced with a life changing illness?
I could ask countless questions like these, but I hope that these are sufficient to get the idea across. The idea is that how we react to these types of situations is a direct reflection of our faith. We can either panic in our human nature or we can turn to Jesus in our need. We can choose to forget what Jesus has promised or we can fully embrace what Jesus has promised. We can abandon what faith we profess to possess or we can fully embrace the faith that Jesus calls us to possess.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
(John 16:33 (NIV))
Do you have faith that Jesus has overcome the world?
Do you live your life reflecting what you profess to believe or do you reflect the world and it’s troubles? We have a choice. We can hold firmly to the world or we can hold firmly to faith in Jesus!
What do you hold firmly to?
