“Harden Not Your Hearts” Heb 3:12-19
There is a peril lest familiarity with God’s words should beget indifference to them. The path may be trodden hard by the sower’s feet. That story of the Wilderness wanderings is for all time. Still men disbelieve and disobey; still they doubt that God is able; still they err in their hearts and therefore fail to understand with their heads; still they wander to and fro, with weary souls and restless feet. But if they who failed to believe in words given by Moses were wrapped around by the winding sheets of sand, what will not be the fate of those who refuse the words of Christ!
How wonderful it is that by just trusting we may be partners with our Lord of His rest, life, glory and resources, Heb 3:14 ! But we must listen to the inner voice, soft and low speaking in the Horeb of our hearts, 1Ki 19:12 . Obey it, and you will enter into the rest of God; refuse it, and you will be as certainly excluded from the divine rest as they from Canaan.
