《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end.” (Heb 3:14 )
Meditation one: What does “original conviction” mean? It is the “faith in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (Heb 11:1) True faith will not surrender due to suffering, challenge, strike, and persecution, but will become even braver, continue to strive hard, persevere, and sustain without giving up. Dear pilgrims, do you want to “come to share in Christ”? Go for it!
Meditation two: Can we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end? It is quite difficult. The only way is to trust in Jesus Christ since He is the founder and perfecter of our faith and salvation. Through the work of the Holy Spirit on us, He gives us the strength so we can come to share in Him. When you fully surrender your whole person to Him, He will take all the responsibilities for you.
Prayer: Dear Lord! I do believe in You, yet help me overcome my unbelief. Please increase my faith: Lead me every day to love You deeper and deeper, to serve You more faithfully, to trust in You more firmly, and to follow You more persistently. I pray in Your precious holy name, Amen!
