THEME: CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST
“Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:”
-Confidence in Hebrew is written as Mibtach; and it means to have faith, trust, or fidelity in someone. As we know, faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrew 11:1). Confidence in Christ is also faith in Christ. Many are the challenges and tribulations that come our way. As Christians; let us not loose hope but hold fast our confidence in Christ so that we may receive our reward. Judas Iscariot walked with Jesus for more that two years but down the line he was deceived and missed the promise. He condemned himself and hang on a tree, died without repentance. Since we have received redemption by Christ who hang on a tree for our sins, let us then have confidence that we shall live forever with Him. Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, kept the promise of life in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 1:1). He fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith, and he received an eternal inheritance. If we have become partakers of Christ like Paul, let us hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end so that we may receive the promise.
