Hebrews 4:9-13 9 So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, 10 for whoever has entered Gods rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. 11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two- edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

SEXAGESIMAIsaiah 55:10–132 Corinthians 11:19—12:9or Hebrews 4:9–13Luke 8:4–15Scripture AloneThe Sower sows the seed of His Word (Luke 8:4–15). This Word is living and powerful (Heb.4:9–13) to conceive new life in those who hear it. But the planting of Christ is attacked by thedevil, the world, and the flesh. Satan snatches the Word away from hard hearts. The riches andpleasures of this life choke off faith. Shallow and emotional belief withers in time of temptationand trouble. But see how Christ bears this attack for us! Christ‘s cross was planted in the hardand rocky soil of Golgotha. A crown of thorns was placed upon His head. Satan and His demonshellishly hounded and devoured Him. Yet, through His dying and rising again, He destroyedthese enemies of ours. Jesus is Himself the Seed which fell to the ground and died in order thatit might sprout forth to new life and produce much grain. In Him, the weak are strong (2 Cor.11:19–12:9). He is the Word of the Father which does not return void (Is. 55:10–13) but yields aharvest hundredfold.
