Listen: Hebrews 4, November 21, 2004
The theme of Chapter 4 is entering God's Rest. What is the difference between God's rest after six days of creative work, the Israelites entering their Caanan rest after 40 years of wandering, and the rest that Jesus promised when he said “Come to me you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” This chapter tells us to fear not entering God's rest. We find out that the reason the wandering Israelites did not enter God's rest was because of unbelief. That is what we are to fear--unbelief.
Listen to the podcast to find out why a heathy fear of not trusting God's promises is actually a recipe for being fearless.
