"So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter."
2 Thessalonians 2:15, NIV
We have talked about being in storms and going through crisis. We should not wait until these times come to know what the Bible says, nor should we wait on adversity before drawing close to the Lord. In scripture, time and time again, we are instructed to STAND FIRM. In Exodus, Proverbs, Isaiah, Luke, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians alone…we see the Lord tell us to stand firm to be delivered from being afraid, and that the righteous stand firm forever. If we do not STAND FIRM in our faith, we will not stand at all. To STAND FIRM is to win life. We are told to STAND FIRM and let nothing move us. STAND FIRM and be on your guard. Most importantly STAND FIRM in Christ.
The message today is what????.... STAND FIRM!!! We cannot stand firm in the shifting sands of unbelief. We must know what we stand firm on! Stand firm on the Rock!
As a follower of certain sports and certain sports teams, I have some great games from the past saved that I can watch sometimes over and over. I enjoy those games because my team has won a big game. I watch them knowing the outcome and that it is a great victory. Folks, we have a victory too knowing the outcome. We should pursue life with that knowledge of who wins this game.
"We are to stand firm in our faith with the certain knowledge that the battle is the Lord’s. Our faith in His victory—a victory that is already accomplished on the cross—is what overcomes the world."
