Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture):

1
19-21
Boldness to enter holiest by blood of J; new way He consecrated through veil (His flesh); priest over house of God.
Principle:
Jesus’ blood sacrifice enables us to approach our heavenly Father with confidence.
2
22-23
Draw near with true heart/full assurance of faith/hearts sprinkled/bodies washed; profess faith w/o waivering.
Principle:
We’ve been cleansed, so we may draw near to God and profess our faith confidently.
3
24-25
Provoke love and good works, not forsake assembling as some, exhorting (encouraging) more as ye see day approaching.
Principle:
Encourage each other to love and do good works.
It is tempting to forsake assembling, but we shouldn’t.
We must encourage each other more as “the day” draws near, probably because there will be more discouragement encountered.

 

Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure):

Jesus’ blood cleanses us for boldness, love and good works.

 

Aim (Christian and Non-Christian):

TCMATK that Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross not only freed us from our sin, but also freed us to approach the Father boldly with a cleansed heart and body so that we may profess our faith and encourage our brothers and sisters to love each other, do good works, meet together and encourage each other as we await Christ’s return.

When have you been tempted to “forsake meeting together”?
What action would you advise another to take to avoid falling to that temptation?
What sort of encouragement have you been providing as the time of Christ’s return draws near?
Why might encouragement in the end times be critical to our Christian walk?
