Hebrews 6:11,12 And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Why do we buy insurance? I have home, car, health, pet and even life insurance. I bought some of those policies, because I can’t afford to fix everything in case something major happens. I bought my home and car insurance just in case something happens. If this is how I think of Christianity, then I need to change that mentality. We can’t be Christians just in case there is a God or just in case there is a hell. Christianity is not about, “just in case something happens so I am protected by the policy”. God meant for us to be active in the Church. He meant for us to take charge and help those who need encouragement. God wants us to work in his church serving one another. Let’s imitate the faith of those who obtained what God promised them, because they did what God asked of them.
