Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/16/13

This week’s scripture is from Hebrews:

Jesus Christ 4“Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds…”   (Hebrews 10:23-24)

Ours is a living hope, a hope assured by faith in Jesus Christ. Our hope lies in God’s faithfulness; our hope lies in Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We can hold fast our confession of hope and never doubt because God is completely faithful, completely trustworthy. His promises never fail; His word is always true. Let us therefore spur each other to exhibit Christ’s love, to love our neighbors as ourselves, to love each other as He loved us, to shed His love abroad into the world through His word, to do deeds of righteousness for His namesake, to show His love by what we do for each other and for others.

May the Lord bless you with the assurance of His love and faithfulness.
