    HOLD FAST TO GOD'S WORD
    Text: 2 Timothy 1:13
    Bible Text:
    "Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus" (2 Timothy 1:13).

    In tough times caused by persecution, economic hardship and religious conflicts, some Christians get discouraged. This leads to backsliding and sometimes, a falling away from the faith. This was the situation when Paul was writing to Timothy. He had to remind him to ‘hold fast to the form of sound words'which he had taught him before. No patient would abandon his doctor's medical prescription and expect to get well. God's word is the Christian's anchor in the stormy sea of life. Adam Clarke wrote, "God gives, in his mercy to man, a form of sound words or doctrines, a perfect plan and sketch of the original building, fair and well defined outlines of everything which concerns the present and eternal welfare of man and his own glory." Let us keep to God's plan. When Korah, Dathan and Abiram rejected God's sound word through Moses, they perished. And when Demas left Apostle Paul and the sound word, he became an apostate in Thessalonica. No matter what other youths are doing today, never give up on God's sound word. Those who do will perish eternally.


    Higher Everyday Challenge: God's sound word provide eternal hope.
    Prayer: Help me, O God to hold fast your sound word, in Jesus'name.

    Higher Everyday Quote: Never give up on God's sound word
