7 MAY 2018 -Hebrews 10:36 (NIV)

Scripture

 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Reflection

This bit of advice comes wrapped up in a larger paragraph, 10:32-39. The people who were receiving this letter had been persecuted for their faith in Jesus. They had their goods stolen, and had come under suspicion and become unpopular because they were Christians. At first they stood strong against the persecution and they had stood together. However, as time went on, they were beginning to drift away. The writer makes an appeal which could apply to any of us, “Be what you were when you were at your best” (Barclay)  (Ps. Dale).

Thoughts for the day

  • What does this passage tell us about God and people?
  • What do you feel God is telling you through this passage?
  • What is one way you can apply this truth to your life today?
  • Who can you encourage with this story/message?

Prayer

Pray for the persecuted Church, our brothers and sisters across the world who are made to suffer because they are Christian. For more information about who is being persecuted and how to pray, visit www.opendoorsuk.org.
