Hebrews 10:23-24 – Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward Love and good deeds.
“Hold unswervingly to the hope we profess.” What hope do we profess? We profess the hope of Christ! It is the hope of the new life that we receive by putting faith in the promise of God. There are many promises that we cannot rely on because they are from unreliable sources, but our source is different. Every promise that we receive from God is worth believing, because we know that it will come to pass.
God is faithful. We know that whatever He says will happen. When He says that Christ has redeemed and sanctified us, we can put our hope in that. And this hope we have in Christ is what spurs us on to Love God and Love people. As we put our hope in Him we will see an increasing desire within us to do what is right and try to please God.
Now as this desire increases within us we must not keep it to ourselves. It is our responsibility to spur one another on to Love and good deeds. How do we do this? Give them encouraging and uplifting words. Remind them of the hope that we hold onto. We live according to this hope and do not swerve from it. It is what gives us the drive to endure through whatever comes our way. As we share what we have with others they too will be able to endure through any hardships and troubles.
This is an ongoing thing. We must surround ourselves with other believers who will help us in our journey as we help them. As we continue to endure together we will be able to spur each other on. There is never a time when we will stop encouraging each other. As believers we must constantly Love and encourage each other.
