Hebrews 3 and 4 contain a serious warning that has often been ignored by Christians because it has been misunderstood. Some say it only applies to the non-Christians mixed in church congregations while others say it is proof that a person can loose their salvation. These and similar interpretations have kept the church from hearing God’s powerful plea the author wants all Christians to hear.
In my article Rest or Suffer the Choice is Entirely Yours I show that God warns us with great seriousness in these chapters but to plead with us to know that living life in this world with absolute rest in our souls is available to us if we will trust Him completely.
There are at least two good reasons I want to share this particular warning with you. First, writers of Scripture including Moses, David, Paul and the unknown author of Hebrews highlight it. Second, it taught me something about my relationship to God and His love for me that I hadn’t realized and I want you to see it too.
I encourage you to rest in the Lord today.
