Living our lives as dedicated Christians seems difficult in the 21st century, but Jesus promised that the necessary help will be provided through the Holy Spirit and that standing firm is necessary to win your life. Here is what the Lord Says in Luke 21-19 while speaking of difficulties and persecutions of true Christians: “not a hair of your head will perish. Stand firm, and you will win life.”
Indeed. Stand firm, and you will win life. Stand firm and keep the commandments. Stand firm and do not follow the popular culture. Stand firm and do not be afraid to enter through the narrow gate. “For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.” (Mat. 7:13)
Stand firm because the Kingdom of God is taken by force (Mat. 11:12). Stand firm because strong people live for Jesus with excitement and enthusiasm. They vehemently oppose sinful thoughts and with strength of emotion resist evil.
