When I fear my faith will fail
Christ will hold me fast
When the tempter would prevail
He will hold me fast
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path
For my love is often cold
He must hold me fast.
– Ada Habershon

I sat in the audience at the 2012 Together for the Gospel conference when John Piper delivered the powerful sermon below. It has repeatedly encouraged my heart so many times since then. In light of several recent examples of professing believers who have now rejected the faith, it does my heart so good to, once again, be reminded of the truth on 2 Corinthians 1:21-22. Wherever you find yourself in the journey of faith today, if you can hear God’s voice in your life, rejoice in that privilege and know that even when you struggle to hold tightly to Him, He will hold you fast!

After you listen to Piper’s sermon, be encouraged by the song, He Will Hold Me Fast.
