19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:19-25
Today’s reading is a kind of “pep talk” to Christians of the day ( as well as to us now) to stay strong in their faith, to not fall away from it. We need to be diligent and confident in that faith, and to be proactive in speaking about it to others. We need to continue to be uplifting and courageous to our brothers and sisters of the faith.
Let us pray please – Holy and Loving God , we pray for strength, for endurance, we pray that You help us stay strong in our faith. This is a world needing You more than ever, and we want to do the best we can to bring Your great news of love and salvation to it. We pray all this in Jesus’ Name…..Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
