There is a shortage of trust today. Probably because so many people and institutions have proven themselves untrustworthy. It has made us cynical and divided.
There is one who can always be trusted. And the writer of the New Testament book of Hebrews reminds us of that. He encourages us to “hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.”
He also reminded us that we are not on this faith walk alone, and that from time to time our sisters and brothers may need encouragement and stimulation “to love and good deeds.”
Lest we forget our condition before we came to know Jesus, the writer of Hebrews told us to “remember the former days, when, after being enlightened, you endured a great conflict of sufferings.” He further encourages us to show sympathy and hold on to our confidence “which has a great reward.”
We need endurance in this life of following Jesus, because we are not of those who shrink back, but we are “of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.”
