From my reading in 2 Thessalonians 2 in the One Year Bible New Testament.
Get a grip!
Paul encouraged the Thessalonians to do two things in order to stay strong.
“With all these things in mind, dear brothers and sisters, stand firm and keep a strong grip on the teaching we passed on to you both in person and by letter.” 2 Thess 2:15
When we encounter problems in life we are to stand firm. Don’t let any thing keep you from standing on the truth and standing for God.
Keep a strong grip on the teaching.
In his letter to the Ephesians Paul likened God’s word to the sword of the Spirit. In order for a sword to be effective the person handling it must grip it well.
We should keep a strong grip on what God tells us through his Word. Don’t let it slip through your fingers. Hold on to the Word and you will have what you need to get through life.
Do you have a firm grip on God’s Word?
