Hold Fast

Today’s verse: “But Christ was faithful as a Son over His house – whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end” (Hebrews 3:6).

These two disciples of John were led by John’s recognition of Jesus as the Messiah to follow Him. As Jesus turned and noticed these men following Him, He asked, “What do you want?”
