YOU ARE TO MINISTER
10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
In the above Paul tells us that God will never forget your work and love that you have shown and do continue to show to the saints. Brothers God is not unrighteous to forget what we do for him in this life. Those of you who have ministered toward the saints, (your brothers in Christ Jesus) He will not forget.
When we pass from this life we will stand before God the Father as Jesus judges us. We are promised here that He will not forget what you did for your brothers in Christ Jesus for you did teach them.
11 And we desire that every one of you shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
Brothers, be diligent in your love for your brothers, in hope unto the end.
12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Here we are told not to be lazy, but rather walk through this life in complete faith and patience and we shall inherit all of the promises which God has promised each of us who belong to Him.
13 For when God made to because he could swear by no greater, he by himself,
Do you see that God swore by himself to Abraham because He greater than
14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.
Brothers this promise that God made to Abraham was promised also to each of us because Jesus has made us the heirs of Abrahams promise. We walk in the blessings of Abraham. Praise God his blessings are our blessings as well.
15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
We are to patiently endure this life until we also shall obtain the promises.
16 For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.
Gods confirmation oath is to us an end of all strife.
17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:
God confirmed by an oath that we are the heirs of promise. Praise God!
18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
Brothers through Jesus we lay hold of hope and thereby we obtain refuge from this evil and dying world.
19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and which entereth into that within the veil;
Our hope is an anchor for our and will be.
20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
Jesus is made the high priest forever. Praise God!
God bless you my brothers in Christ Jesus. Please go about each day ministering unto your brothers the saints of God in the name of Jesus.
