Hebrews 3:12-14 "
The hardening of our hearts is the spring of all our other sins." God tells us, in no uncertain terms, about the evil of sin and the need to accept Him by faith as our Savior, so don't shut 'your' heart, mind and soul off from His calling to you.
"There is a great deal of deceitfulness in sin; it appears fair, but is filthy; it appears pleasant, but is pernicious; it promises much, but performs nothing. The deceitfulness of sin is of a hardening nature to the soul; one sin allowed prepares for another; every act of sin confirms the habit; sinning against conscience is the way to sear the conscience; and therefore it should be the great concern of every one to exhort himself and others to beware of sin." [M. Henry]
If we ' There are a great many who in the beginning of their profession show a great deal of courage and confidence, but do not hold them fast to the end. Perseverance in faith is the best evidence of the sincerity of our faith." [M. Henry]
1] We should be doing all the good we can for one another. Life is short and uncertain. "Don't grow weary in doing good."
2] Tomorrow is not promised to anyone of us, so make the most of today for His Kingdom.
3] The devil targets us every day to turn us from God, so we need daily reminders of Truth.
"Unbelief is the great damning sin of the world, especially of those who have a revelation of the mind and will of God. This sin shuts up the heart of God, and shuts up the gate of heaven, against them; it lays them under the wrath and curse of God, and leaves them there; so that in truth and justice to himself he is obliged to cast them off for ever."
Encourage someone today in your life, because you may be the only one who cares about them enough to make an eternal difference.
