Do not throw away...

"Therefore, do not throw away your confidence which has a great reward."--Hebrews 10:35. The Hebrew writer here is continuing to encourage these Christians that are thinking of going back to their old ways to hang on to their confidence which they once had.  Here in this verse he tells them not to throw it away. 

Do not throw away.  The image above is a familiar one to many of us.  The image above tells us that something is not intended for trash. 

Do not throw away.  Attach this image to your Christianity.  Among other things, we should be looking at our Christianity and saying "Do Not Throw Away."

Do not throw away.  Notice this verse tells us that our confidence has a great reward.  Our reward is eternal but our Christianity offers rewards in this life as well such as better relationships, an expanded family and an overall better life.  Why would we throw something like that away?

Do not throw away.  It pains me to know that some of the otherwise strongest Christians I have known of have been among those that Hebrews 10:39 calls "those who shrink back to destruction." This same verse reminds us that Christians are not those who shrink back but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.  This is the type of people Christ calls us to be, of those that has a faith that preserves our very soul. Do not throw that away. 

Do not throw away.  So my encouragement to you is simply this.  Realize how valuable your faith really is and the rewards it offers in both this life and the life to come.  Do not throw that away.
