Two Great Warnings
The Hebrews were teetering on the edge of a cliff, possibly turning their backs on salvation.
1. He encouraged them to turn back.
2. Give warnings.
a. There is a danger of ignoring the warnings, thinking they don't apply to us.
b. We can misinterpret the warnings
1. The warning is serious and urgent. The danger of falling away, can committing apostasy, rejecting Christ totally.
2. What must we do to avoid falling away? Shake off any dullness of hearing, encouraging each other, meeting together.
But Jesus' sacrifice is perfect, and he is praying for us, so our faith will not fail. Jesus equips us to do his work.
1. He is writing to a mixed community.
2. Those in Christ have become dull of hearing.
Whether we are Christians or not we can't afford to ignore the warnings.
In addition, we had a trailer for Faith Pictures, a Church Army course on talking about one's faith. Click on the globe to see the relevant page and watch the video.
