I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you. — Gal 1:6
That which counts for most in Christian life is steadfastness, holding on through all discouragements, all hindrances.
Some people make a brilliant start, and then lose their enthusiasm. That means to have been the trouble with the Galatians. Paul says, “I marvel that ye are so quickly removing from Him that called you in the grace of Christ unto a different gospel.”
In another of his epistles he begins by thanking God for those to whom he was writing for their faithfulness, their loyalty, their devotion to the truth. But he begins this epistle by marvelling at the lack of seriousness and of steadfastness in the Galatians.
When certain persons desired to become Christ’s followers, He said to them, “If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed.” It is the continuance with Christ as believers and as His followers that proves our discipleship.
We should have our feet on the rock and should cleave to Christ, whatever the pressure may be. It is a great thing to be fixed and stable.
