Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
"He who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him."
But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved!
I haven't read anything more life giving than this. God frees us of our guilty conscience and makes our bodies clean! Why do I carry around a guilty conscience? Do you know what I'm talking about? That thing you think about as you enter into God's presence, or even when you pray, and it creates a barrier between you and God because you feel unworthy and that He's not even there or listening? That thing that you've carried around for like 10 years and you always think about as your "deepest sin issue".
Get rid of "it" today. Put it to death once and for all. Claim these scriptures over your life. Walk in freedom and "do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For He who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with Him."
