Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with full assurance that faith brings . . . And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” – Hebrews 10:19-25
The Christian always confronts changing trends whether in the world or the church. Covid seems to have exaggerated certain changes. Some employees struggle to return to the workplace and congregations have found some preferring the seclusion of online worship. The effect of communication primarily with digital devices continues to be a growing concern. While some may seem satisfied with these trends, a dimension of life is missing as personal relationships suffer.
The book of Hebrews has something relevant to say in any age. “The Day” of Christ’s return is approaching. We need each other in the Body of Christ. How much does the Kingdom suffer from isolated, independent living? The world’s vexing ways seek to force themselves on us. The sweet peace from resting in Christ is constantly interrupted by exasperating unrest and evil. In the midst of this, Jesus wants us to be prepared and ready for His Coming. By Jesus’ blood, believers may approach with confidence the Throne of Grace. And let us encourage one another all the more.
