Hebrews 10:23 (ESV)
23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
If we “confess” Christ to be our Lord and Saviour, our living “hope”, then we need to “hold fast” to that belief.
Our day-to-day lives do distract us.
We worry about all our concerns (Matthew 6:25).
We’re easily lured by the false “promises” associated with the pursuit of “riches” (Luke 18:14ff).
We’re all too easily “deceived”. Dragged away from our maker.
Ignoring the very Author of life (Acts 3:15).
What’s more, Satan will purposely “tempt” us as He did Jesus (Mark 1:13).
Yet through all this God remains faithful (Isaiah 49:7).
Despite our selfish behaviour. And in spite of our repeated forgetting about Him.
For nothing can “separate us from the love of God” (Romans 8:39).
prayer : help me to not be distracted by the concerns and pleasures of life
action : “hold fast”
