Salad Bowl Christianity

Salad Bowl Christianity

Besides being the reason for men making coffee, Hebrews also has a health food connection that we need but frequently miss. Hebrews has sixteen uses for “let us.”  (The NIV  translation.)salad-clipart-clipart-saladroad-runner-wcgqf5d8

  • 4:1 let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it (entering His rest).
  • 4:11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest (from his own works).
  • 4:14 let us hold firmly to the faith we profess
  • 4:16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence
  • 6:1 let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity
  • 10:22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith
  • 10:23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess
  • 10:24 let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
  • 10:25a Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing
  • 10:25b let us encourage one another
  • 12:1a let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles us
  • 12:1b let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us
  • 12:2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus
  • 12:28 let us be thankful, and so worship God
  • 13:13 Let us, then go to Him, outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore.
  • 13:15 let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise

So from the “rest of God” to offer “a sacrifice of praise” the “let us” of Hebrews covers a healthy Christian life. Eat up and enjoy it.

All of these are from the NIV and I am sure they may be different in other translations. Since I like to give credit where it is due, this was a sermon from R.W. Schambach that I heard many years ago.
