The Christian life doesn’t guarantee our protection against trouble. In the face of life’s tumults, however, God’s Word offers hope to those who persevere. As Alistair Begg explains, the writer of Hebrews encouraged believers to diligently press on with confidence, spurred on by the knowledge that they were anchored to an unchanging God. If we similarly hold tight to Christ, we can rest assured of an eternal inheritance.
9Though we speak in this way, yet in your case, beloved, we feel sure of better things—things that belong to salvation. 10For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. 11And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, 12so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
