“So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught, whether by word of mouth or by letter from us” (2 Thessalonians 2:15).
Hold fast and stand firm, says Paul. How many have wavered and fallen in our day because a new wind of doctrine comes and people are blown away. Stand fast then in the never-changing true Gospel delivered once for all. In Christ alone is all hope, for He is the rock of our salvation. Where you lack faith, trust in the One who gives faith. He has already overcome so that You might join and be with Him forever.
Lord, I do not understand all of these things, but then, I do not need to, do I? I sometimes am blown about like a piece of paper in a storm. Help me to become like You and be an unmovable rock laid upon a foundation of truth. Guide me, Lord, in all things so that I would now and always hold fast to what I have already been given and build my life upon You. Help me now and always, Lord.
Lord Jesus, You are the foundation, author and finisher of my faith. You are the One who makes this faith possible. Lead me, O Lord, so that I would go the way You know I need to go. In and through all things, help me see the path You lay before me and not wander from it. Teach me how to hold fast to that which You have taught me. Amen.
