BEAR WITH

July 2, 2009

When someone's rightfully in our face, when we've received a good talking to that we've had coming, when we've had a 'come-to-Jesus meeting,' what do we do with it?

Brothers and sisters, I urge you to bear with my word of exhortation, for in fact I have written to you quite briefly.

- Hebrews 13:22 TNIV

Hebrews ends with a P.S. The letter at large is an extended word of teaching, discipleship, correction, summons to faith, and encouragement. But having heard these words, what did the Hebrews do with it? What do we do with it?

Am I a person, are you, who hears the truth and am willing, desirous, and committed to do it, to heed it, to "bear with?" For that was the point, that was why the letter was read and sent in the first place.
Joyfully,

Dale Patterson
