My Title: Enter Into His REST
My Verse: 15
"15 As it is said, 'Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.'"
We ALWAYS rebel. It's just the nature of our heart. WE want to be God. We want to take hold of what's rightfully HIS. - "Never more clever is the mind of man than when justifying it's own sin." - If we aren't careful we will stray from the truth because WE WANT TO.
Moses was a faithful SERVANT. Jesus was a faithful SON. Moses listened to God and because of that God used Him powerfully to establish His story. It showed us that God is SERIOUS about sin and rightfully, justly, and righteously will pour out His WRATH upon it. Those that were disobedient to God were NOT allowed to enter into His REST. That is because He is a GOOD, TRUSTWORTHY and FAITHFUL God.
Jesus was a faithful SON. He was obedient unto death and was made a perfect high priest in suffering. His death allowed Him to defeat the one who hold the power of death SO THAT anyone who believes in His sacrifice can partake of God's mercy and grace. BECAUSE He is a GOOD, TRUSTWORTHY and FAITHFUL God.
