Hebrews 10:23 ESV
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
hebrews 10
To hold fast is not something we must do to maintain our salvation but it is a sign of our everlasting salvation. That we hold fast always with hope, without wavering meant to not revolt back to the old ways of the OT Covenant. To not waver would also mean to endure persecution and possible torture. With that confidence Christians can persevere to the end because of the one who has promised.
2 Corinthians 1:20 ESV
For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.
Amen, in Hebrew means affirmation. We still utter Amen in affirmation today, everyday. Here Paul is speaking back to the gospels and Acts to the disciples when they said YES to Christ. We to still today say YES to Christ and we should shout it out daily with a mighty Amen for the promises of His glory. All of these promises, peace, joy,, love, goodness,sanctification,salvation,fellowship,hope,glorification, and heaven are made and fulfilled through Jesus Christ
1 Corinthians 1:9 ESV
God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
God is above all. The almighty. He cant not be faithful in His promises.
The grace will always be supplied to fulfill the calling of Christians. His faithfulness means we will always be saved, our sins will always be forgiven, PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE
In order to live out Gods promises we must know Gods promises and the best way to meditate on them is to pray them and speak them back to Him. Maybe at our old feeble age we remember that God has promised a place for us in Heaven. Maybe in a time of pain God has promised comfort and peace. Maybe in a time of loss or financial burden God has promised to never leave you or forsake you. He is there always. HOLD FAST
Psalm 4:1–8 ESV
Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have given me relief when I was in distress. Be gracious to me and hear my prayer! O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame? How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? Selah But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him. Be angry, and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the Lord. There are many who say, “Who will show us some good? Lift up the light of your face upon us, O Lord!” You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
Romans 5:1 ESV
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 5
Philippians 4:7 ESV
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 23:1–6 ESV
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
