We're not quitters!

Hebrews 10:22-25(Message)
"So let's do it—full of belief, confident that we're presentable inside and out. Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let's see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching."

My manna for today. That phrase "Let's keep a firm grip" made me think of my manna from the other day, about holding on to God's promises with both hands.
And vs.39
"But we're not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We'll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way."
That's what I want to do, Keep a firm grip on what I believe and stick with it all the way.
Sometimes it seems so hard. Yes, but really what seems hard and what is hard are two very different things. It says earlier on in the chapter about how God feels when we turn our back on His sacrifice.
"what do you think will happen if you turn on God's Son, spit on the sacrifice that made you whole, and insult this most gracious Spirit?"
Now that would be hard. Facing the Most Holy God, after turning your back on the One Who loved you enough to give His Own life? But that is what we do when we doubt.
Oh, no, it's not too hard for me to stay on track and survive, trusting all the way!
