Drawing Near

19    Brothers and sisters, we have confidence that we can enter the holy of holies by means of Jesus’ blood,  20  through a new and living way that he opened up for us through the curtain, which is his body,  21  and we have a great high priest over God’s house. 

22   Therefore, let’s draw near with a genuine heart with the certainty that our faith gives us, since our hearts are sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies are washed with pure water. 

23    Let’s hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, because the one who made the promises is reliable. 

24  Let’s also think about how to motivate each other to show love and to do good works.  25 Don’t stop meeting together with other believers, which some people have gotten into the habit of doing. Instead, encourage each other, especially as you see the day drawing near. 

Hebrews 10:19-25

What often stands in the way of your approaching God: a lack of confidence (vs. 19) or a lack of habit (vs. 25)? Reflect on this question and imagine what Jesus might tell you in response. What invitation do you hear in these words from the book of Hebrews – in Jesus’ response to you?

Memory Verse –
He leads me in right paths,
for his name’s sake.
