Only let us hold true
to what we have attained.
Taken out of the context of the rest of Philippians, you may be wondering to what this verse is referring, and what does it have to do with God’s work in Spain? Great questions!
Paul exhorts his listeners, the members of the church in Philippi, to hold on to the truth of the gospel of Christ that they have already believed in. To be unified in their belief of the doctrine that he has taught them, namely that our justification and our righteousness come from faith, not from our works.
In the photo below, three adults profess their faith in this pure Gospel, and join you and me as brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ, and specifically of the Lutheran Church in Spain. You see two pastors and three adults, all holding true to what they have attained: unity in their belief of the true Gospel.
Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I say rejoice!
(Again from Paul in Phil 4:4)
