“15Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 16Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.” II Thessalonians 2:15-17
Praise God for these words of comfort and exhortation! Lord, help us to stand fast (persevere). Help us to hold (use strength to hold fast) the traditions (precepts, ordinances) that we’ve been taught. Thank you that You are our Comforter and the one who will set us fast and strengthen us in every good word and work.
