Hebrews 10:19-25

Therefore…Let us…

Hebrews 10:19-21

Therefore,

since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary

by the blood of Jesus

by the new and living way

that he opened for us through the curtain

that is, through his flesh

since we have a great priest over the house of God

better than the angels

better than the High priest

a better HOPE

a better Covenant

What do we do about it?

Therefore…Let us…

New covenant vs. Old covenant?

What do we do with our Better than angels, better than priests, better hope and better covenant Jesus perspective?

Hebrews 10:22

let us,

approach with a true heart in full assurance of faith

with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience

and our bodies washed with pure water.

Hebrews 10:23

let us,

hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering

for he who has promised is faithful.

Hebrews 10:24-25

let us,

consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds,

not neglecting to meet together

encouraging one another

and all the more as you see the Day approaching

Hebrews 10:19-25

Therefore…Let us… encourage one another

Hebrews 10:25

μὴ ἐγκαταλείποντες τὴν ἐπισυναγωγὴν ἑαυτῶν

not leaving behind the bringing together of ourselves

ASV/KJV: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together

ESV/NRSV/NLT: not neglecting to meet together (see Acts 2:42-47)

NIV/GNT: Let us not give up (the habit of) meeting together

Let us not neglect meeting so that:

we’ll always have a place for people with unbiblical authority to push their personal agendas

we’ll always have a place to battle for power, privilege and authority

we’ll always have a place not so much to practice Christianity but at least a place to talk about it

we’ll always have a place to go when we need to talk about other sinners

we’ll always have a comfort zone where we don’t really have to grow and from where our church can bash other churches

Therefore…Let us….

Vs. 22: let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith

Vs. 23: Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess

Vs. 24: let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

Vs. 25: Let us not give up meeting together

but, let us encourage one another

Hebrews 10:19-25

Therefore…Let us…

draw Near to God

hold strong to our hope

encourage one another

towards love & good deeds

all week long

Additional verses:

Hebrews 3:12-13

See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.

Acts 2:42-47

42They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.

Acts 2:42-47

44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.
