Timeless truths from Philippians 2:16.
What does it mean to hold “fast the word of life”? It means you actually do what the “word of life” instructs! The “word of life” is the Bible. Two verses prior to the encouragement to hold or adhere to the Bible, we are instructed to “do all things without grumbling or disputing.” Quite frankly, those of us who hold conservative views of the Bible are quick to advocate our theological adherence to the Bible as inspired and infallible. We need to be just as quick to personally hold fast to the “word of life.” We must practice what we say we believe!
“holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain.” Philippians 2:16 NASB
