“For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end” (Heb 3:14).
Our confidence in Christ must not waver even when we face adversities that appear stronger than our strength can endure. It is not our strength that preserves us but God alone. Our beginning is of faith therefore we must not view the battles as ours alone. Christ being a part of us is involved in everything we do. He shares with us what belongs to Him and since He has already passed through the heavens, there is no goal higher than what He has already accomplished. He takes His victory and shares it with us, therefore we have an identity in Him in heaven. We are admonished to hold fast to the confidence we had from the beginning. It is God’s gift to us to be maintained by us. Our faith is cultivated by and through the living Word. Even if we do not see an end to our difficulties, God is able to stay with us to the end in order for us to receive what He has promised. There is an end or a reward to all who trust in Him.
