Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. (Hebrews 4:14)
Today's Morsel: A father told his son, "Son, I want you to hold this rope and don't let go, no matter what." Well, when the horse took off and was dragging the young lad, the father began to shout, "Son, let go." But the boy held on. When the horse stopped, the father said to the son, "Son, why didn't you let go?" He replied, "Dad, you told me that no matter what to not let go." You used to be able to tell some people's profession by the attire that they wore. I wish this was a true statement today. Even in the church, we are left to wonder. Are they really Christians or not? Are they really true laborers for Christ or workers of Satan? Paul said that we should hold fast our profession. In other words, the one who we confess to be ours, Jesus Christ, don't let go. We must hold fast to the truth of the Gospel message and proclaim it to a dying and lost world. Paul told the church at Galatia, "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:6-9). And to the church at Ephesus, put on the whole armor of God that ye may be able to stand. Peter tells us, " But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light" (1 Peter 2:9). Our lives must reveal Him. How well are you representing your profession? A true Christians' life reveals Him in every way and at every turn. Not just Sundays.
