Memorization Monday - Hebrews 3:14

Heb 3:14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,

Perseverance is an important Scriptural principle. Those whom God saves, He keeps. It's His power that keeps us. As Jesus says in John 10:28-29 "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand."

The writer of the book of Hebrews is explaining that holding our confidence steadfast to the end is the sure sign that God has actually saved us. It is not saying that we must hold on to the faith at all costs that we don't allow ourselves to be lost. He is saying that maintaining our confidence is proof of our salvation.

It is encouraging to know that the people He saves are kept by his power.

Amen to that! If it were dependent on our power, it would be a disaster.
