Hold On To GOD
Wow, it's Sunday today. We rejoiced in the church to receive God's Word.
Today my church Pastor preached on the subject of Hold On To God and do not look back anymore. We were referred to Hebrews Chapter 10 verses 19 to 39 and also Chapter 12 verse 5. We were saved by Christ and through Christ we can come near to God and call Him Abba Father. Jesus Christ helps us to be able to come near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith. We should then hold fast to the hope promised as our God is a faithful God. Then in the body of Christ we should consider one another to love each other that the Agape Love of God is manifested through us to the world. However, a number of people after being saved still continue to sin. This deliberately continue to sin would bring the severe punishment from God as we have treated unholy the blood of the covenant that sanctified us and also have insulted the Spirit of grace. We should remember it is dreadful to fall into the hands of the living God for He said,"It is mine to avenge; I will repay." It is not easy to be a Christian but is a joy to be a Christian; a true follower of Christ would testify to this! Paul said, "Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." To win that prize, we have to be faithful in suffering and courageous in endurance to press on toward the goal. God bless you.
