Hebrews 4:1

Revelation 14:11

Hebrews 4:12

James 1:23-25

Hebrews 4:13

Mark 9:41

The root of this means “terror”—It means something that causes you to run in fear.

Diligence is Vital

Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. (Hebrews 4:1)

Fear is a powerful motive

“They have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:11).

Mark 9:41

God’s Word Can Help Us

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. (James 1:23-25)

Hebrews 4:13

Mark 9:41

This word originally meant “to seize and twist by the neck”. It was used to describe sacrifices. Later it was used as a sign of submission and vulnerability.

God’s Judgment Motivates Us

“And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13).
