Discouraged Christians, the message of Hebrews is clear. If you were thinking of turning back, there is nothing to go back to! The Old Covenant is obsolete and won’t save you now. You are under a far superior New Covenant. Your high priest is Jesus, who is ever interceding for you. Remember your spiritual heritage and the heroes of the faith in chapter 11. If they kept their faith during great trials and tests, you can too. Life principle: I can overcome the enemy of discouragement by keeping a heavenly perspective.
