Message of the Day: Keep the Faith, Do Not Forsake Christ, Endure!
Text: Hebrews 10:26-39
Key Verses: Hebrews 10:35-36
“Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise…” (NKJV)
Those who are tempted to go back to Judaism are reminded that apart from Christ’s work there is no way of salvation. If they reject him, they can expect only judgment. Even under the Old Testament rebellion met with death. How much worse will be the punishment of those who have experienced the grace of God through Christ, yet deliberately reject and disown it.
The author of the book hebrews encourages us not to forsake Christ, by reminding us of what we have experienced when we became believers of Christ. Some of us have persevered towards insult, violence, and other sorts of sufferings, because of our confidence of a lasting reward.
Endurance is essential, since there must always be some waiting time before a promise can be fulfilled. For Christians like us, the promised reward will be Christ’s return, when he judges between those who persevere in faith and those who turn back.
