“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Hebrews 10:36,39




…you need endurance,

so that when you have done the will of God,

you may receive what was promised.


But we are not among those who shrink back and so are lost,

but among those who have faith and so are saved.


– Hebrews 10:36,39 (NRSV)






If we are true believers,

then we need to stay loyal.

To be loyal to Christ and to stand our ground

we need strength of character.


In spite of the world’s seemingly constant urging to live God-less lives,

and the taunts and prejudices hurled at us as we seek to stick to God’s commands,

as faithful Christians, we must loyally stand our ground.

We also do this cheerfully

because we know that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

He declared Himself as such

and He also promised us eternal life.


Am I one of those who “shrink back”

because I want to be seen, by others, as being worldly

or because I simply want to satisfy those selfish longings, which the Lord warns me against?


Or can I be counted as one of “those who have faith”

who, with great hope in their hearts, constantly strive to follow Christ’s teachings,

ready to give of their selves to others,

ready to love without expecting to be loved in return,

driven by the desire to please the Lord and do as He says,

and looking forward to share eternal life with Him?






Please, Lord, strengthen my faith – I want to do Your will.
