What happens if we don't hold fast, and we DO waver?
What comes to mind now, is
6: But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7: For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

Yes, GOD is faithful, but we are not. If any man thinks he does not sin, he's a liar.
So, you take that scripture to mean precisely what it says, how about this one?
26: For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27: But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

If we sin wilfully. That's a big one. God always, always provides a way out of giving in to any temptation or sin, or he makes us able to bear up under the pressure of the sin, and not give in.
Do you sin wilfully? Is it really possible to live a life pleasing to Jesus, every day and night?
Yes, it must be or He would not have told us how to do it.
That's where, it comes to my mind, that the path is narrow, and few there be that find it.
