Continue in what you've believed (2 Timothy 3:14-15)

"But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus." - 2 Timothy 3:14-15

There is something particularly comforting to me about calls to perseverance for believers as well as assurance for what that perseverance will produce. I like being reminded that people do run the race successfully. People do finish strong.

That said there is some good advice here. Continue in what I've learned, firmly believed. Remember who my teacher was (both mentors I respected and the Holy Spirit), and remember my founding in the very Word of God. Something not to be taken lightly.

I was raised a believer. I know many who shared a similar upbringing but were afraid to continue walking with the Lord or left the Lord for something seemingly more satisfying. But I like to press on knowing where it leads. Knowing its good. Knowing the scripture leads to wisdom. Remembering I am saved eternally because of Christ Jesus.
