Hebrews 10:19-25

Hebrews 10:19-25

19 Therefore, brothers, 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 in full assurance of faith, 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 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-- and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

(NIV)

Ty Cobb, all-time baseball great, played 3,033 straight games, and for twelve years led the American League in batting averages. For four years, he batted over 400. He was, arguably, the meanest and most unlikable man ever to play the sport. On his deathbed, July 17, 1961, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior. He said, "You tell the boys I’m sorry it was the last part of the ninth that I came to know Christ. I wish it had taken place in the first half of the first.

It is not enough to CONFESS; we must also POSSESS.

Hebrews 10:22

22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

(NIV)

vs 22 Growing older is mandatory! From the moment you discover life on Planet Earth, you begin to grow older. Growing up only comes by choice!

There is a great difference between t-ball and Major League Baseball.

The same thing is true spiritually. Professional Baseball managers do not call up players from the T-Ball league. The skill required to play in the big league is far greater the just being able to connect with a ball on the stand and being able to scurry to first base. Big league play requires big league players.

Growing older is mandatory; growing up is optional. But only those who grow up get to play in the Majors! God has no minor league players, no little league players, no T-ball plays. All the players on God’s Team are MAJOR LEAGUE!

1 Peter 2:9-10

9 But you are not like that, for you have been chosen by God himself-- you are priests of the King, you are holy and pure, you are God’s very own-- all this so that you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

10 Once you were less than nothing; now you are God’s own. Once you knew very little of God’s kindness; now your very lives have been changed by it.

(TLB)

It is not enough to POSSESS; we also must PROFESS.

Hebrews 10:23

23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

(NIV)

There are two major bodies of water in the land where Jesus walked. One is the Sea of Galilee, a beautiful lake 13 miles long and 7 ½ miles wide filled with fish and surrounded by lush foliage.
