Bible Reading: Hebrews 3
Insight: “But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.” (Heb 3:6)
Insight one: What is the main reason of Christians’ spiritual life being weak? It is that cannot “hold firmly” in faith while faith cannot be held firmly to the end is associated with the status of spiritual life. We are saved through faith, have life, have peace, and have joy. With a new life, we must continue to strive for spiritual renewal, breakthrough, and growth through faith. The growth of spiritual life requires continuous renewal and adjustment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit through daily spiritual meditation, until Christ is formed in our hearts. Only the spiritually mature life will continuously trust in the Lord, love the Lord, and follow the Lord to the end.
Insight two: Are you a member of God’s family? What is the evidence of being a part of God’s family? It depends on whether Jesus Christ is the Lord in your life, and if let Him be the Lord of the family. It is not easy to hold firmly as a Christian family in the generation of jumbling between right and wrong, muddling truth with falseness, and confusing between genders. However, with the help from God, we are not afraid. Our responsibility is to hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory. God’s promise is: “do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded” (Heb 10:35).
Prayer: Dear Lord: Thank You for preparing a place for us in our Father’s house, and make us to be fellow heirs and partakers of Your inheritance. Please help me, since Your love for me will never change, I am determined to never change my trust in You. Please have Your Holy Spirit dwelling in my heart and make me pant for Your words as a deer pants for streams of water, so that my spiritual life will be renewed day by day, growing day by day, and strong always. Oh Lord! You love me to the end, and I want to trust in You to the end. I pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
