Hello to all- As I am preparing a message on HOLDING FAST, I am pausing to share this fun word with you...! This is because SATAN, our adversary is full of it! Lies, deceptions, distortions, and other 'crafty' methods all belong to his TARRADIDDLE! So- Be on guard and let him know WHOSE YOU ARE and WHO YOUR LORD IS! I PETER 1:13 calls us to 'PREPARE OUR MINDS for action; be SELF-CONTROLLED (in the power of his HOLY SPIRIT within us!); SET OUR HOPE FULLY ON THE GRACE TO BE GIVEN YOU when JESUS CHRIST IS REVEALED.' Notice how HE is so ready to reveal his grace at any point.. Jesus Christ can be 'known and shown' every moment of every day if we but HOLD FAST as ones anchored in the blessed HOPE and ASSURANCE we have solely in the completed 'work' of Jesus, our Lord and Savior!
