Hebrews 6:11-12
“And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” 

The idea of perseverance can sometimes seem automatic to us as believers. Yet the writer of Hebrews (and many other biblical authors) strongly desired that his readers would be diligent until the end. The use of the word “sluggish” shows us that the writer wasn’t implying the extreme of a false christian abandoning his or her false faith but rather a true believer becoming sluggish, lazy, or dull in faith and holiness. How do we avoid this? We must be imitators of those who persevere through faith and patience and remember the full assurance of hope we have in Christ. It is He who bought us by His blood, and it He who will hold us fast until the end.
