#56 In The Series "HEBREWS - The New And Living Way (And Why It's Better Than The Old Covenant)"
What if someone came and told you today this was the last day - the very last day - you would ever see a Bible in any form? What if someone came here today and told you this would be the last day - the very last day - you would ever gather with another Christian - that you would never see another believer again? Or what if you were suddenly told you would never again - not ever - hear God's praises sung by a group of fellow-believers. What if you found out today you never again - not even once - hear the voice of another saint praying for you or anybody else?
Yet we can so frequently piddle through these precious, Christ-centered things - or perhaps just stay home if the weather's nice - and not even miss any of them. And that's because we have gotten used to them. They're just the same. It's hard staying excited about a Jesus who is always the same. It's just as hard as it is precious.
Our writer continues his closing reminders to this group of persecuted Hebrew believers. Like any teacher wrapping up, you can almost sense his tension as he feels pressed for time in his closing remarks. Most of the instructions are quick and to the point. Following New Testament pattern, he is building application after laying the doctrinal foundation.
