“Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13
Text: 1 Corinthians 16:9-14
Paul the Apostle was encouraging the Corinthian brethren to stand fast in the faith. What does It mean to stand fast? It means to be grounded in the doctrine of Christ to the point that nobody can deceive you or pull you out of what you believe.
A story was told of a girl who belonged to a particular Christian fellowship; she was so grounded in the doctrine that nobody could persuade her to change from what she believed. She obeyed the instruction of her parents and the word of God. Are you like that, do you obey the instruction of your parents? The children of Rechab in Jeremiah 35, obeyed the instruction of Jonadab their father not to drink wine.
If you are a disobedient child you need to repent today, make up your mind like the Rechabites, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, Samuel, Timothy, Esther and Paul the Apostle to stand fast in the faith and never allow the temptations of this world to pull you down.
Jude 1 -3
