God Holds Us First and Fast

A father and young son were crossing a busy street. The father grabbed his son’s tiny hand and told him to hold on tightly. When they reached the other side of the street, the boy said, ‘I held on right, didn’t I, Dad?’ ‘Yes,’ the Dad replied, ‘but I held on first!’ If salvation depended on our grip, we would eventually let go. Only God can guarantee our eternal future with him.
