Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.  Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.  And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds,  not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
The writer to the Hebrews probably never imagined the kind of situation we are now in, with it being impossible for Christians to meet together. But even before this virus came along there were many believers around the world who were prevented from meeting, because their governments are opposed to the Christian gospel. Sometimes they meet in secret, or they rely on the internet for fellowship. Let us pray for them, as their plight, unlike ours, is not temporary. We need fellowship with one another, so let’s pray that it will soon be possible to meet together again, to encourage, support, teach, worship and pray together. But through all this, we can do what the writer says in verse 22, and draw near to God. No virus can sever our fellowship with him, or take away the assurance of his loving mercy and cleansing from sin.
Thank you Father that nothing can separate us from your love.
