“hold fast till I come… keepeth my works unto the end”
by Randy Amos
We live in a changing world – and church. Truth once held is being let go in the name of liberty. And in our technological explosion things are changing almost monthly. We let go of what was the “newest and greatest” to further upgrade to something more exciting.
Is it easy to hold something fast for a long period of time? Try holding a 3-pound book in your hand while standing. For a few minutes it’s easy. But could you do it for even a week? Tiredness, hunger, inconvenience, time demands, peer pressure to move on, and even boredom would make it a monumental task.
There are things the Lord asks His children to hold fast (not let go of) until He comes. But that can be hard because of relativism, results, reputation, relationships, and regression (small at times). If 20 people were standing side-by-side in a straight line and eventually 19 stepped back, the one who didn’t move now looks strange and out of unity with the others. Yet we are exhorted to be “steadfast, unmovable,” 1Cor. 15:58.
