Hold firm!

Hebrews 4:14 “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.”

Friend, pause and just thank God for Jesus right now!  We are so blessed to have a Savior who chose to leave heaven and experince a reducule, rejection and a horrendously painful death FOR US... to pay for our sin---and after the price was paid--He didn't sit on His hands--he sat down beside His Father to be our advocate!

Romans 8:34 “Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died--more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”

Amazing!  The very one who will judge all-mankind is the one who died to make salvation available to all who believe!  All who have received Christ HAVE NOTHING to fear and EVERYTHING to be thankful, for!  There is NO condemnation for those who are IN CHRIST (Rom. 8:1).

In light of that the Hebrew writer urges us "...to hold firmly to the faith we profess."  We profess that Jesus is our Lord, our King, our Advocate, our Savior---We hold firmly to our Lord's promise that He will never leave us or forsake us..." (Heb. 13:5)... He is our all in all... we can do all things through Him who gives us strength.  You are loved, embraced, adopted, lavished with grace and love---and on and on!

So....

In light of all of that, Hold firm!  Be strong!  Shine bright!  Live and love well!

Be strong and true.... share this with a friend!

Blessings,
