  • 2. COMBINE GOD’S WORD WITH FAITH Hebrews 3:6-19 ‘But Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house. We are his house if we continue to come boldly to God. We must also hold on to the hope we take pride in. 7 The Holy Spirit says, “Listen to his voice today.8 If you hear it, don’t be stubborn. You were stubborn when you opposed me. You did that when you were put to the test in the desert…
  • 3. COMBINE GOD’S WORD WITH FAITH Hebrews 3:6-19 …9 There your people of long ago put me to the test. For 40 years they saw what I did. 10 That is why I was angry with them. I said, ‘Their hearts are always going down the wrong path. They have not known my ways.’ 11 So in my anger I took an oath. I said, ‘They will never enjoy the rest I planned for them.’”…
  • 4. COMBINE GOD’S WORD WITH FAITH Hebrews 3:6-19 …12 Brothers and sisters, make sure that none of you has a sinful heart.

Wasn’t it those who didn’t obey? 19 So we see that they weren’t able to enter. That’s because they didn’t believe.
