Paul: ‘Stand Firm!’

Elder Miguel Lemming presented, “Paul: ‘Stand Firm!’,” in which he quoted a statement offered to him by Michael More’: “The Word shows us that Paul is certainly an example we can follow in putting on perseverance. Even after all the trials Paul went through, including severe beatings, being stoned and left for dead, being shipwrecked, and finally being unjustly thrown into a Roman prison, Paul still goes on, as Philippians 4:1 says, expressing his love for believers while encouraging them to “Stand Firm” in the Lord.” As followers of Christ, we too are to do just that, stand firm in our faith no matter what trials life has in store for us. Only by staying strong in our faith and leaning on Christ, Who is ever present with us, can we believers continue to persevere.
