The Hebrews Initiative • Watch Out!

Reading:

Hebrews 3:7-15 (KJV)
7  Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
8  Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
9  When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
10  Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
11  So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
12  Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
13  But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
14  For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
15  While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

Main Point

In the church, we have a responsibility to encourage each other to firmly hold to Jesus.

Introduction

What are some warning signs that you typically see every day?

What warning signs do you wish were in place for your spiritual journey with Christ?

How would you want those warning signs delivered or displayed?

Warning signs appear everywhere. In fact, we see so many that sometimes we overlook them. Or worse, we start to ignore them. Imagine, however, how dangerous driving would be if all road signs suddenly disappeared. Or think of how many people would get hurt by carelessly walking too near a construction site, taking the wrong medicine, or getting too close to wild animals. We need the warning signs. We dare not ignore them! In Hebrews 3:7-15, the biblical writer posted an urgent warning for believers. We must not let the tests of life harden our hearts against God. The journey of faith is a lifelong trek, requiring us to maneuver through twists and turns that put our devotion to Christ to the test. We have a mutual responsibility as believers to warn and encourage one another daily in this matter.

The Weather is supposed to be awesome this Sunday Morning. We look forward to seeing you all! Also, this page is now accessible through the Church Web page.

God Bless and have a great week.
