Hebrews series message 7

Text: Hebrews 4:1-13

Last Sunday and this Sunday are powerful motivations towards evangelism. In Sunday's passage we are implored to make sure we enter into God's rest (salvation). There was an entire generation who died in the wilderness without entering the promised land. Joshua led the next generation into the promised land but Jesus is better than Joshua because the physical land was a type of a spiritual reality. Even though the Israelites entered the earthly Canaan, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God: salvation. Our author devotes no less than two chapters to this crucial decision before us all and reminds us that the very Word which calls us to salvation is alive and active and convicts us of our need for a Savior.
