Hebrews 3:6-11

6-11Now, if we can only keep a firm grip on this bold confidence, we're the house! That's why the Holy Spirit says,

Today, please listen;

don't turn a deaf ear as in "the bitter uprising,"

that time of wilderness testing!

Even though they watched me at work for forty years,

your ancestors refused to let me do it my way;

over and over they tried my patience.

And I was provoked, oh, so provoked!

I said, "They'll never keep their minds on God;

they refuse to walk down my road."

Exasperated, I vowed,

"They'll never get where they're going,

never be able to sit down and rest."

12-14So watch your step, friends. Make sure there's no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. For as long as it's still God's Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn't slow down your reflexes. If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we're in this with Christ for the long haul.

These words keep ringing in our ears:

Today, please listen;

don't turn a deaf ear as in the bitter uprising.
