“On Belay” ( 2 Thessalonians 3:3, WYC ) by Carley Evans

I climb — not as often as I’d like — but being attached to a rope when climbing is smart. Yes, there are people who climb without rope; they are free to fall with any mistake from which they are unable to recover footing or grip. I climb with a rope on belay. That means someone below is holding onto the rope so that if I fall, they will catch me within a few inches.

“But the Lord is true, that shall confirm you, and shall keep [us] from evil.”

Paul’s promise here is amazing. What a comfort — that “the Lord is true.” Jesus never utters a lie for our adversary is the father of lies and Jesus has nothing in common with him. In fact, Jesus “keeps [us] from evil.” He “confirms [us].”

Jesus is belayer and anchor — I don’t plan a climb without Him.
