Hebrews 10

This chapter begins the wrap-up. If it is true that Jesus is superior to the angels and Moses, and if he's a perfect sacrifice and a perfect priest, and if it's true that the new covenant is better than the old, and if it's true that the heavenly tabernacle is better than the earthly one, then. . .
  1. Let us draw near to God (Heb. 10:22).
  2. Let us hold fast to our confession of hope without wavering (Heb. 10:23).
  3. Let us stir one another up to good works (Heb. 10:24-25).
If we do this, we will take seriously the warning of God's judgment and the promise of reward. Our willingness to help others out and be helped out, is a measure of how seriously we take God's word on the final judgment and reward.
