1 John 2:24, 25 NLT
“So you must remain faithful to what you have been taught from the beginning. If you do, you will remain in fellowship with the Son and with the Father. And in this fellowship we enjoy the eternal life he promised us.”
Starting a race well is important but it’s more important to finish well. We BECOME Christians by accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior, trusting in Him and His death for us. That’s the start of the race. BEING Christians is the same. We keep on trusting in Jesus. We keep on believin. We keep on following. That’s what John called “faithful.” We start in faith. We walk by faith. We end by faith. From first to last. And as we are continuing faithful we are not alone. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are with us.
