Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:1-2
We are called to hold fast to God’s word. His word is the standard for truth and it is faith in Jesus Christ and the truth of His word that brings us to salvation. In a world that is filled with darkness and deception we must hold fast to the truth of God’s word. As we continue to go forward, things will become more difficult upon the earth. But as we focus upon the Lord alone, He will strengthen us for the journey.
We must abide in Him daily and we must spend time studying God’s word and meditating upon His word. We are bombarded daily by the lies and deceptions of the enemy, but it is the truth of God’s word that will guard our hearts and our minds. God’s word will open our eyes to the lies of the enemy and understanding God’s truth will enable us to walk in freedom and authority.
