Help Each Other To Be Strong

Hebrews 10

19) So, my brothers, we can go into the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus.
20) He made a new and living way for us. He opened up God’s way specially for us. It lets us through the big curtain or cloth which hides God from us. This happened when Jesus gave his body as a sacrifice.
21) Also, we have a high priest who has charge of God’s people.

22) So let us come to him with a true heart. Let us come because we believe all these things. Let us come with our hearts washed clean from our wrong ways. Let us come with our bodies washed with clean water.
23) We must hold on to God’s promise that we have said we believed. And we must never let go. He has promised and he will do it.
24) Let us think of one another and help one another to love and to do good things.
25) Do not stop going to church meetings. Some people do stop. But help each other to be strong. You must do it all the more as you see the Great Day coming closer.

OR, put another way:

Therefore, brothers, since we have freedom of speech by the blood of Jesus to the point of entering the holy places (by this blood he made new for us a recent and living way through the veil, that is, his flesh), and since we have a great priest over God’s house, we should come near with a true heart, wearing our trust fully, having our hearts sprinkled from a consciousness of evil, and having our bodies washed in clean water, we should hold fast to the acknowledgement of hope without nodding our heads. For the one who promised is reliable. We should also bear one another in mind out of a stimulation of love and nice deeds and not abandon gathering together (as it is the custom of some people). On the contrary, we should comfort one another, and rather a lot, as you see the day drawing near.
