Sometimes I like to compare New Testament translations to better understand what the original authors might have meant. Here is one of those cases in Paul's epistle to the Hebrews. Paul is telling the Hebrews, and us, that God is aware of our works of love and efforts to minister to fellow believers in Christ. He is telling us that the leaders of the Church want us to be diligent in our efforts to serve others that we might have hope throughout this life.
Hebrews 6:10-12 (KJV)
10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
11 And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Hebrews 6:10-12 (NRSV)
10 For God is not unjust; he will not overlook your work and the love that you showed for his sake in serving the saints, as you still do.
11 And we want each one of you to show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope to the very end,
12 so that you may not become sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
