Hold Fast to Hope!
Passage: Hebrews 6:13–6:20
Series Sermon #18: To wrap up his 3rd warning passage with the Hebrews, the author ends with strong encouragement. He starts out obscurely with some thoughts about how God provided for Abraham (vv. 13-15), but then moves to specific instructions for us (vv. 16-20). He explains what we are (i.e., heirs, refugees) and ends by imploring us to lay hold of "hope." Our souls inherently look to lay hold of something outside ourselves that will completely transform our existence into a state of fulfillment and stability. The author tells us that we must lay hold of Christ!
