Today’s Reading | Hebrews 10:19-39
Response to Forgiveness
How did you respond to the kind of truth we read yesterday? Is it just something you log in your memory bank? Or, is there some kind of action we should be taking? The passage of Scripture that we read today answers that question. There are five challenges to us in this section all beginning with the words “let us.” Number and then circle them in your Bible. First, we are to draw near to God. We do that by faithfully reading His Word every day and spending time with Him in prayer. Second, we are to hold unswervingly to the hope we have. God is faithful – we should not doubt Him or lose our confidence. Third, we are to consider how we can spur one another on toward love and good deeds. What can we do to challenge others to become more like Christ? Notice he used the word “spur.” It may not be comfortable. Fourth, we need to make church attendance a priority. There isn’t an option of whether or not to meet together. Finally, we are to encourage each other. We are to do things that boost others’ spirits. We need to pray for others and ask how we can encourage them. How are you doing in these five areas?
Observation: What do I see?
Interpretation: What does it mean?
Application: How does it apply to me?
