Hebrews, then, is a vehicle for worship that leads to the right sort of service.  The progression may be seen as follows: “Since we have [indicative]…let us draw near [imperative based on indicative]…so we may hold fast [possibility created by the first two steps].”

—Ben Witherington III, A Vision of Kingdom Worship, 105
