Divine salad

A good salad usually has a lot of lettuce.  I found a salad mix in Hebrews salad that seems healthy from all of the "let us"!
Hebrews 10:22 let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. 24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
Jesus has secured a great opportunity for us and it is captured by all of the "let us" commands from the author of Hebrews. 
You might summarize them this way:
    (1) Let us go directly into His presence.
    (2) Let us hold to our hope, trusting in God's promise.
    (3) Let us serve one another in love.
    (4) Let us meet to worship and encourage each other as we await His return.
This might be considered as a recipe for a nutritious salad.  The dressing is built into the mix by the Holy Spirit!
