"But you have come right up into Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to the gathering of countless happy angels; and to the church, composed of all those registered in heaven; and to God who is Judge of all; and to the spirits of the redeemed in heaven, already made perfect." Hebrews 12: 22 - 23 (TLB)
I heard this verse the other day and I immediately hid it in my heart so I could go look it up again and study it. It brought me such comfort and yet was thought-provoking as well. In this chapter of Hebrews, the author is encouraging the followers of Jesus, to stay the path, to stay strong in the face of adversity, and to realize the payoff is the beautiful gift of eternal life. The entire chapter is so encouraging.
On this rock I will build my church, and the shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16: 18
