Hebrews 10:22 & 24. … let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,…
Three conditions are given for drawing near to God: a true heart, assurance of faith and a heart cleaned from an evil conscience. We also have a duty to encourage and love one another. We can have a conscience free from evil because it is based on a once-for-all sacrifice of Christ.
This is God’s Word speaking to us!
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
How comforting it is to know that we serve a God who knows us and loves us. He knows our thoughts and our paths, he knows the words we speak, before we have even spoken them. He knows us completely, and yet He still loves us. He loved us so much, that He sent His only Son to die on a cross for us, to pay the debt that we could never pay. Let us join the psalmist and praise the Almighty!
Week by week, day by day, I receive evidence through various news channels and reports that global lawlessness is surging in every place and at all levels of society and government. Laws are promulgated that turn righteousness into criminality, nonsense is exalted, the Holy is mocked and the innocent are targeted by the guilty. I rejoice, for this all confirms Scripture. Jesus is coming soon.
“You, therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen” – 2 Peter 3:17,18
Let’s together hold fast on our Rock, showing His glory in love, service and praise.
That’s indestructible happiness!
