Scripture Reference: Hebrews 4:1-13
Where are you today? Emotionally, physically, spiritually? In this word is awakening; in this word is revival. The word is REST.
Hearing the word…the perfect proclamation…is not enough…we must respond in faith.
Reminder of the Hebrew audience:.
Hebrew skeptics or rejecters
HEARING THE PLEA (v. 1-11)
Entering Rest is Available
Failure to Enter is Possible
The Lord will only let you walk in disobedience for a season. He will either get you right, or take you out.
Responding in Faith is Essential
UNDERSTANDING THE TERMS
“rest” - cease, stop, freedom from work or activity
“short” - come short, fail to reach
RECOGNIZING THE URGENCY
“fear” - lets us be careful, let us take care; sense of trembling at the significance of the need
“diligence” - make every effort, strive, labor, do our best
We cannot fully understand the love of God without understanding the justness of God
The timing to enter rest is today.
2 Corinthians 6:1-2
Now; tomorrow isn’t promised
If you do not anchor in you will drift away
Judged by His Word
Exposed in His Sight
Which will you choose today?
To enter into rest?
Assume you have more time?
Get in to God’s Word
Hear Him say “Come”
