Faith is Kept

2 Timothy 4:7
Through many trials and disappointment there would be reasons to chuck our faith in Christ. But these reasons would not be good reasons. Many though give up on Christ, because life does not go as they wish.

    Jesus did not come to have a good life, He came to rescue us (Mark 10:45) from the wrath to come (1 Thes. 1:10) He came with a purpose.
    In the same way we do not keep faith by focusing on ourselves, but we focus on following Jesus.

    Keep our eyes on Him and live for His purpose, as Jesus lived for the purpose of the Father. John 7:16

2 Tim 1:14 Guard through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us the treasure which has been entrusted to your.
Proverbs 23:23 Buy truth and do not sell it, get wisdom and instruction and understanding.
Luke 8:15 Seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the word in an honest and good heart, and hold it fast and bear fruit with perseverance.
1 Tim 6:20 guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called knowledge.
Rev 3:8 "I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power and have not denied My name."
Rev 3:10 "Because you have kept the word of My perseverance. I also will keep you from the hour of testing, . . ."

Let the Holy Spirit show us what would come against our faith. And guard against that. Buy truth by spending time studying and learning the Bible as it's taught by the Holy Spirit. Keep at your works of faith with perseverance. Stay away from worldly and empty chatter which is counter productive. Persevere in keeping the Lord's word to you.
