“Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”
Revelation 3:11 KJV
There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. So prove all things; hold fast that which is good, and abstain from all appearance of evil. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for He is faithful that promised. Amen!
Get wisdom, get understanding: Forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: And with all thy getting get understanding.
I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; And when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: Keep her; for she is thy life.
… the path of the just is as the shining light, That shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life.
Let thine eyes look right on, And let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
Ponder the path of thy feet, And let all thy ways be established.
Proverbs 4:5, 7, 11-13, 18, 23, 25-26 KJV
… Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
Hebrews 3:6 KJV
