We all face different struggles and sorrows. We work to find leaders, religious institutions, and spiritual experiences that will give us hope. We live in a time of restlessness and anxiety. The writer of the book of Hebrews encourages us to find Jesus and experience Him because He is Greater.
1. Let us DRAW NEAR | Hebrews 10:22
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.
>In what ways is your heart cleansed by Jesus blood and our body washed with living water? Find examples in 26-39
>What are some ways people draw near to God?
2. Let us HOLD FAST | Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
>What does the author say is the reason we can hold onto hope? Find examples in 26-39.
>What other things do people put their hope in? Do they satisfy?
>How can a person hold on to Gospel Hope?
3. Let us STIR UP | Hebrews 10:24-25
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
>In what ways do you think people miss out on experiencing true love?
>When did you experience authentic love? Compile a list of what authentic love looks like.
>What can we do, as a church, to overcome these obstacles and express love to one another and our community? Can you find examples in 26-39?
