Daily Bible Nugget #522, Hebrews 6:11

The Nugget:

Heb 6:11  And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: (KJV)

Heb 6:11 But we passionately want each of you to demonstrate the same eagerness for the fulfillment of your hope until the end, (NET Bible)

Heb 6:11.  We wish that each of you would always be eager to show how strong and lasting your hope really is. (CEV)

My Comment:

The Christian life is not a static thing. We must keep on growing in our faith. Faith comes by hearing and obeying the word of God found only in the Bible. If you are not deeply and regularly engaged in personal Bible study, you don’t know what you are missing! We need to demonstrate diligence and eagerness to grow spiritually in our walk with the Lord.

Notice God’s Word tells us that we may have full assurance. Salvation and eternal life are not a “hope so” matter. You can know for sure in this life that you have the salvation God has promised to those who fully believe in the promises given in His word, the Bible.

There is no reason for anyone to go around moping, feeling stressed, feeling depressed, when the God we serve has given us such precious  promises as these. See this marvelously amplified when you carefully consider the related verses in the Bible pointed to by the cross references given below.

For those who are able to take the time to dig deeper into this verse, here are the more complete cross references I have collected for Hebrews 6:11 as found in The Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury:
