Let Us Hold Firmly to our Faith
14-15 Seeing that we have a great High Priest who has entered the inmost Heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to our faith. For we have no superhuman High Priest to whom our weaknesses are unintelligible—he himself has shared fully in all our experience of temptation, except that he never sinned.
16 Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with fullest confidence, that we may receive mercy for our failures and grace to help in the hour of need. Hebrews 4:14-16 Phillips
It is not the easiest of task living a Christian life in an evil world. Christians are under pressure from the world, our human nature and the evil one. That pressure is constantly trying to pull us away from the things of God. For this very reason, Christians are encouraged to “hold firmly to the faith”. Our great High Priest Jesus Christ is not about to let anyone snatch us from His hands. We can be confident that he will not let us fall. When the pressures of this life entice us and we slip, we can go to God with assurance that he will forgive us. He will also provide grace to help us in our daily struggles. Jesus Christ provides the help we need to persevere in our faith. The ride may be rough, but hold on.
