Let Us Get With It!

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works.” Hebrews 10.23-24

This is such a life-changing passage and we need to consider all of this in context. In vs. 19-22 we read these words: “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water …

Can you grasp the significance of these words? Once we realize all that we have in our salvation package, then we can grasp the significance of all that we are in Christ. And knowing that, each day becomes a new and fresh opportunity to “glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6.20)

These phrases carry great weight: (1) Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith (v. 22); (2) Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering (v. 23); (3) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works (v. 24); and (4) Not forsaking the assembling of our selves as the manner of some is. (v. 25)

I don’t think the Holy Spirit was stuttering here when He inspired the author of Hebrews to write these words for His people (and that includes us). I sense no impression of a negative life, but quite the opposite is expressed here. People are looking at what we DO to determine who we ARE and WHOSE we are. Take a moment sometime today to re-read these verses and ask God to help you do things mentioned here. Just my thoughts …
