Hold On . . . .

Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.(1 Thessaloninas 5:21-22)

Paul was encouraging the believers here to not give up. The Day of the Lord is indeed approacing, and we as believers need not to shrink back or be intimidated by evil, but hold on to what we know is good, perfect, and right!We as a Body must be sure to rejoice in these challenging times and be sure that everything that is done is done for the good of all concerned, not just the few. Wrong is never right and right is never wrong!(1 Thessalonians 5:15)

In these last and eveil days, we must be led by His Spirit and controlled by His Spirit, not simply our emotions. (1 Thessalonians 5:19) The Word of God is aways our litmus test. It must be our guide and source of wisdom.

James would remind us that if anyone lacks wisdom, we are to ask of God.(James 1:5) When all hell seems to breaking loose, God cherishes sharing His wisdom with His children . . . it's the only way we can hold on!
