Chronicles of Koinonia

Heb 10:19-25

Introduction

- Why do we come to CG or church? Fun? Food? Friends? Fellowship?

- What does fellowship really mean?

- Koinonia = fellowship, communion, partnership, common

- in duties, ordinances, mutual interest, sufferings, glory

- Rick Warren, "It’s not just about believing; it’s about belonging."

- context/background (v.19-21)

1. Draw near to God in faith (v.22)

- 1st blessing: access to God (the Most Holy Place, heavenly sanctuary); curtain

- 2nd blessing: Christ’s rule over the church (priestly rule over the household of God)

- Heb 4:14-16 "draw near with confidence to the throne of grace"

- worship, prayer, devotion

- sprinkle our hearts with blood // 9:18-22 Moses sprinkle blood on people during ratification of old covenant at Sinai

- bodies washed: alludes to baptism, conversion (cleansing of heart and body)

2. Hold unswervingly to hope (v.23)

- 6:18

- maintain a firm confidence in the objective gift of salvation God has extended to the community on the basis of Christ’s priesthood and sacrifice

- calling for the community to remain stable and affirm its privileged status as the people who have been granted access to God through Christ

- He who promised is faithful // 6:18 "it is impossible for God to lie"

3. Spur & encourage toward love (v.24-25)

- distinguish us as a community

- Jn 13:35 "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another."

- admonition: warning and reproof, given in a loving way
