Work/Works – Day 29

Hebrews 6:10

God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.

The Thought

There is no single person named as responsible for writing this letter. It is often assumed to be Paul, or one of his close followers who had travelled with him. Because much of the text sounds like things Paul would say.

Neither is any recipient named, other than “The Hebrews” as in the title. The majority of early believers were of Jewish origin. They recognised that Jesus was the promised Messiah, so they became Christians. But they were still known among the Christian community as “Hebrews”. There was a lot of pressure from traditional Jews to turn back to Judaism and continue with all the rituals.

This letter is encouraging the readers to stick with it and not go back to the old ways. If people know any verses from this letter to the Hebrews it is usually the “hall of fame” in chapter 11 where the writer names many forerunners who have done great things for God.

Later in chapter 11 we read of the work that many people did for the Lord. And when we get to Hebrews 11:32 we read a list of names that the writer is not going to give details about. But they all worked for The Lord. Then follows a list of some of the things they did which makes most of us feel as though we have done nothing!

… who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength, and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. – Hebrews 11:33-35
