Cast Not Away

shield

Hebrews 10:35-36
Cast not away therefore your confidence,
which hath great recompence of reward.
that, after ye have done the will of God,
ye might receive the promise.

Cast not away therefore your confidenc

Your liberty of access to God;
your title and right to approach his throne;
your birthright as his sons and daughters;
and the clear evidence you have of his favor, which,
if you be not steady and faithful, you must lose.

Do not throw it away,
neither men nor devils can take it from you,
and God will never deprive you of it if you continue faithful.
There is a reference here to cowardly soldiers,
who throw away their shields, and run away from the battle.

This is your shield,
your faith in Christ,
which gives you the knowledge of salvation;
keep it, and it will keep you.
