Lettuce life

Re: Verse reading–Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:1-10 (day seven)
It is one of the characteristics of the book of Hebrews.  “Let us” statements.  Words that encourage group obedience.  Notice today’s reading.  “LET US hold fast our confession.” (v 14)  “LET US draw near with confidence to the throne of grace.”  (v 16)  Last week’s lesson has several others.  “LET US fear . . .(lest) any one of us. . . come short. (4:1)  “LET US be diligent to enter that rest.”  (v 4:11)  We learn two important things from these statements.  1) The Christian faith requires action.  2) We are to act together with others, as members of a team, body or family.  Neither solitary obedience or inactive membership is the will of God.  Find a church!  Join it!  Imagine it as a context for group obedience!  Encourage others!  “LET US consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling, as is the habit of some.”  (10:24-25)  May the Lord be pleased as we gather this morning!
