Let us do our best to enter that place of rest. For anyone who disobeys God, as the people of Israel did, will fall.
That is why we have a great High Priest who has gone to heaven, Jesus the Son of God. Let us [/b[b]]cling to him and never stop trusting him.
So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it.
So let us stop going over the basics of Christianity again and again.
Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding. Surely we don't need to start all over again with the importance of turning away from evil deeds and placing our faith in God.
let us go right into the presence of God, with true hearts fully trusting him. For our evil consciences have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
Hebrews 10: Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have, for God can be trusted to
keep his promise.
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith,
let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress.
And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us.
Since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be destroyed,
let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe.
So let us go out to him outside the camp and bear the disgrace he bore.
With Jesus' help, let us continually offer our sacrifice of praise to God by proclaiming the glory of his name.
