Let Us...

    Hebrews 10:22-25 says, “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. [23] Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. [24] And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, [25] not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”

    Several things he mentions here as commands for us to do.

    First— let us draw near with a true heart and full assurance of faith. We are Christians. We have been washed in the blood through baptism. We are forgiven of our sins. Therefore we must let go of the guilt, move forward and draw near to God with a pure, forgiven heart.

    Second— let us hold fast without wavering. God has promised eternal life to the faithful and He is faithful. If we hold fast, He will deliver...yet we must hold fast to our hope and faith.

    Third— let us stir up one another to love and good works. It is my responsibility to motivate others to love as they should and to do what they should. The main reason for assembling together as Christians is to worship God, yet motivating one another is another great reason. We are not just at church for what we might get out of it, but we are there to encourage and motivate others. This should be our goal every time we join together. We don’t go to church just to passively watch, but to encourage and motivate others as well.
