Bible Text:

Hebrews 10:23-25

Hebrews 4:9

2 Timothy 2:11-13

Hebrews 3: 5-6

1 John 2:28

Hebrews 10:24

Hebrews 10:25

 

 

Believers must hold fast to the confession of their hope, consider one another, and assemble with other believers.

Hebrews 10:23-25 NKJV

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 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.”

 

Hold Fast To The Confession Of Our Hope

As the end of this age approaches we must hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering.

Hebrews 10:23 NKJV

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.”

 

Hebrews 4:9 NKJV

“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.”

Our confident expectation of our future is our “confession of hope.” We have a promise from God that we can enter into His rest. The choice is ours. If we do what is expected of us we have the assurance that God will receive us into His presence and His rest.

* Confident means firmly believing; certain; sure.

* Expectation means to expect something to happen.

* Expect means to think something will come or happen or to look forward to.

* Waver means to move to and fro; flutter; vary in intensity; flicker; be undecided; hesitate; become unsteady; begin to give way.

2 Timothy 2:11-13 NKJV

“This is a faithful saying:

For if we died with Him,

We shall also live with Him,

If we endure,

We shall also reign with Him,

If we deny Him,

He also will deny us,

If we are faithless.

He remains faithful;

He cannot deny Himself.”

 

Hebrews 3: 5-6 NKJV

“And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward, but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.”

As a Christian we should remain certain of and be looking forward to the day that we enter into God’s rest. We must not waver in our belief or give up. The Bible tells us that we can be confident that we will enter into God’s rest.

1 John 2:28 NKJV

“And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.”

 

Consider One Another

As the end of this age approaches we must consider one another.

Hebrews 10:24 NKJV

“ And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works”

Consider means to observe, to look at carefully; reflect; ponder; examine; to contemplate, or to have an intelligent insight into.

Love and good works need to be stirred up; they do not just occur.

 

Assemble With Other Believers

Hebrews 10:25 NKJV

“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.”

Believers have an impact on each other. Exhorting means coming alongside and inspiring another with the truth.
