Hall Monitor

Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that He opened for us through the curtain, that is, through His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:19-25



I was elated and proud to be selected as hall monitor when I was in seventh grade.  My post was on the corner of the north and east hallways. People going from east to west were to pass in front of me. People going from west to east were to pass behind me.


They could have used a pylon, a traffic cone, or a chair for people to pass in front and behind, but they chose me.  My job was to stand. That was it. Just stand. 


We are to stand on the unwavering ground of the gospel of Jesus Christ, who is faithful and true until the end.


But we don’t stand alone; rather, we stand with one another by “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together.” We are to be together consistently, for the purpose of encouraging one another more and more as we see the day of the Lord getting closer and closer.


God calls us to stand with other believers on the gospel of His faithful Son.  Let’s stand on that.


Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
