"And we desire that each one of you show the same
diligence so as to realize the
full assurance of hope until the end,
that you may not
be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the
promises." Hebrews 6:11-12 (NAS)
God wants us to be "imitators" of those who inherited the promises
through faith and patience. Their faith and patience caused them to
have "diligence"...so that they might realize
the "full assurance of hope."
Let's look further at the book of Hebrews...and its definition of faith, and
also those men and women of faith who we should imitate.
