Perhaps no passage in Hebrews is more central and practical than the words of 10:19-24. In some ways, they are a summary of true faith, and biblical religion: love God, endure, love the brethren. 

God’s gracious call to draw near comes from Psalm 22:22-23, where we are called and welcomed to praise, glorify and fear Yahweh. We then sing this, to the uplifting melody of “FOREST GREEN”. 

From God’s call to ours: we call upon [“invoke”] God to assist us to praise. Our praise is always a response, so we read from His Word in Psalm 73. Here Asaph resolves to draw near to God, as Hebrews 10:22 tells us to do.

We then sing the song “Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery”, which recounts our new and living way to God: “Christ the great and sure fulfilment of the Law, in Him we stand”.

Our New Testament reading is similarly the climax of the book of James: calling on people to forsake their sin, draw near to God and He will draw near to us.  Our response is further prayer, the song “My God I Love Thee”, and our offerings. 

Our time of hearing with obedient hearts follows, and we respond to Hebrews 10:19-24 with “Be Thou My Vision”.
