The book of Hebrews was originally written to Jewish Christians who had turned from tradition to follow Christ. These believers were now facing rejection and persecution from their peers, and it was tempting for them to return to an easier way.
Our walk with Christ is not guaranteed to be easy; in fact, it's just the opposite. Jesus said, "Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows.” (John 16:33) Life can be so hard, but we can be sure that God will always walk with us and it will be worth it. Don't give up!
"Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:8
Are you committed to following Christ, no matter what it costs... or are you tempted to return to what is convenient and comfortable?
