2 Timothy 1:13-14

 
Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.
2 Timothy 1:13-14

Holding fast requires deliberate determination, doesn't it? Relaxing our grasp leads to letting go. Paul tells Timothy to hold fast in the faith and love of Christ to "the pattern of sound words" that he has heard -- the reliable consistency of speech that exemplifies Paul's teaching. If I would just learn to keep my spiritual hands on the handlebars for the entire ride, I wouldn't find myself reaching frantically for a grip when the road gets rough.

The same "good thing" that was committed to Timothy, the treasure of the good news of salvation, has also been committed to you, believer. You and I must keep this "good thing" throughout our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us. Today, let's remember to hold fast. Let's keep the truth of salvation through Christ by His Spirit as we answer God's call upon our lives to share in the faithful and loving work of His kingdom.
