The verses preceding what we will look at today was the writer accusing the Hebrews of immaturity. However, he did want to ensure the readers were not exasperated, but instead had an assurance of salvation. So as chapter 6 finishes out, we see many powerful reasons to have the full assurance of hope to the very end. And as we begin chapter 7, we see that Melchizedek was greater than Abraham, and by extension the Levitical Priesthood. And since Jesus is our High Priest forever through the order of Melchizedek, we have even more reason to assured of our hope until the end.
