Remember those who led you.

 From the letter to the Hebrews.
 Remember those who led you, 
who spoke the word of God to you;
and considering the result of their conduct, 
imitate their faith.  13:7

...we must pay much closer attention to what we 
have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.  2:1

And there is no creature hidden from His sight, 
but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him...

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,
for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.

For Jesus is able also to save forever 
those who draw near to God through Him,
since He always lives to make intercession for them.

 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
the conviction of things not seen.
For by it the men of old gained approval.  11:1-2

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding
us, let us also lay aside every encumberance and the sin which 
so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance 
the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus,
the author and perfecter of faith...  12:1-2

Therefore, since we have a great high priest 
who has passed through the heavens, 
Jesus the Son of God, 
let us hold fast our confession.
For we do not have a high priest 
who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses,
but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, 
yet without sin.
Therefore let us draw near 
with confidence to the throne of grace,
so that we may receive mercy 
and find grace to help in time of need.  4:14-16

But encourage one another day after day,
as long as it is still called, "Today," so that
none of you will be hardened by the 
deceitfulness of sin.  For we have become 
partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the 
beginning of our assurance firm until the end.

For indeed we have had good news preached to us... 
for we who have believed enter this rest...  4:2-3

And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once 
and after this comes judgment, so Christ also,
having been offered once to bear the sins of many,
will appear a second time for salvation 
without reference to sin,
to those who eagerly await Him.  9:27-28
