Hold Fast, For I am Coming

As a child mum used to sing the song “Hold Fast For I am Coming”. Amid trials and tribulations, the words of our Lord in Revelation 3 resound with a clarion call, “I am coming soon”. This promise is a message of hope, reminding us that our struggles are temporal and that eternal glory awaits those who persevere. As believers, we are called to hold fast to our faith, the precious crown that has been bestowed upon us through the grace of our Saviour.

In this scripture, the crown represents our Eternal salvation, our victory in Christ, and the rewards that await us in heaven. It is a symbol of our identity as children of God, chosen and set apart for His glory. However, the journey is fraught with challenges, and there are forces at play that seek to derail us from our path. The enemy prowls like a roaring lion, looking for whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). Therefore, we must be vigilant, steadfast in our faith, and anchored in the Word of God.

To hold on to what we have means to cling to our faith with unwavering resolve. It means to stand firm against the tide of temptation, to resist the allure of worldly pleasures, and to endure hardships with patience and grace. It is a call to remain faithful to the teachings of Christ, to live a life that is pleasing to Him, and to be a beacon of light in a darkened world.

Today, as we await the return of our Lord, we must remember that our crown is not just a future reward but a present reality. It is a reminder of the victory we have in Christ, a victory that empowers us to overcome the world. So, let us hold on to what we have, for in doing so, we secure our crown and ensure that no one can take it away.

“I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.” (Revelation 3:11).

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, please help me in these last days, to be always ready, counted worthy, and always watching for the glorious return of my Lord Jesus Christ, in Whose Name I pray. Father, thank You for Your wonderful grace and keeping power. Lord, I trust wholly in you and in Your most gracious salvation, help me to hold fast till You come. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
