Hebrews 6:10 – God Sees Your Service

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Context: The author of Hebrews is encouraging his audience to maturity through obedience.

Hebrews 6:10 “For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for His name in serving the saints, as you still do.”

Observation: God sees your service.

Application: I want to rest in this fact – God sees my service.  I don’t have to try to impress others or do anything “big.”  I just need to work hard by showing love for His Name through serving the saints.

Are you encouraged by this verse today?

  1. Sam, We serve the most wonderful loving God that a human can possibly imagine. He knows our needs before we may even be aware of them and prepares a solution for those needs that opens up when we come to Him in prayer as we discover those needs. I do have a question concerning the verse part, “I just need to work hard by showing love for His Name through serving the saints.” I find the terms “saints” to be open for discussion. Many Christians I have known who thought they were, or acted as if, they were saints, proved not to be while many who never thought of themselves as “saints” acted in a true Christian loving way in their lives, that showed the Love of God shining through them – to really be saints.

    I prefer the Living Word version that says, Heb 6:10> “For God is not unfair. How can he forget your hard work for him, of forget the way you used to show your love for Him- and still do – by helping his children.”.

    “his children” can include all humans, There is no better way to help a child who has not yet found God, than by showing then the way by the living testimony of a truly Christian life and sharing with them the amazing joy and blessings of being a true believer in God, the creator of all things, and His messenger to us, Jesus Christ.

    1. John –

      Great words! Thank you for your thoughtful response.

      The word for “saints” is hagios, Meaning: sacred, holy, Origin: from hagos (religious awe). We see other appearances in the NT in Mat 10:42, Mat 25:40, Act 10:4, 1Th 1:3, Rom 15:25 and Heb 10:32-34.

      I truly believe you are also correct – “There is no better way to help a child who has not yet found God, than by showing then the way by the living testimony of a truly Christian life and sharing with them the amazing joy and blessings of being a true believer in God, the creator of all things, and His messenger to us, Jesus Christ.”

      Amen brother! I need to be challenged to serve all people for God’s glory. I just stepped out of a meeting in which we talked of the reality that the church in the US is much to inward focused and not enough outward focused.
