A Bit Of Alliteration

"Therefore, brethren, having the confidence to enter the Holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us, (courage) through the veil, that is, His flesh, since we have a great high priest over the house of God, let us draw near (come near) with a sincere heart full of assurance of faith, (confidence) having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. (cleansed) Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, (confession) for he who promised is faithful; let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, (cheer) not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; (congregate) and all the more as you see the day drawing near" (Heb.10:19-26).

Alliteration can be used as a memory tool. We can apply it by using several words that start with the same letter to help us remember the important details of what we want to learn. I offer you this morning, the alliteration of some important passages of scripture, Hebrews 10:19-26. You can feel free to copy this devotional and use a pencil or highliter to underline or mark the phrase that you think is represented by the "C" word.... I'll give you some hints as we see the important stuff in today's rather lengthy passage... Courage... What is it that serves as the source of courage? Is it our good deeds, worthiness or holiness? Come near... What exactly does it mean to draw near the God? How do I do this? What does it specifically involve? Confidence... Do we have to have absolute assurance of faith? If we died today, are we confident that we will spend eternity with the Lord, and why do we feel this way? Cleansed... Do we remember what it felt like to have our sins washed away through our baptism? How does it feel to know that we are constantly being renewed (re-washed) day by day? Confession... Confession is more than what we did when we were baptized. What do you suppose the author means here by confession and how do we confess to Him daily? Cheer... Just how does your church family spur you on to bigger and better things on your Christian walk? How do you reciprocate? Congregate... Why do you think that the Holy Spirit is warning us here about the bad habit of not assembling together regularly? What is the value we can get from doing this? I hope you take some time to meditate over this passage with my alliterations as a guide, and see the value in it...

Have a wonderful day... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
