Cary Cox, from Hebrews 5:11 – 6:3. The writer pauses his teaching on Christ’s priesthood to give a serious warning. He will warn against apostasy – turning finally from the faith. But first, he tells us what leads to apostasy: prolonged spiritual immaturity, which is caused by laziness in the things of God. When we fail to grow up in Christ we are walking on dangerous ground.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 3:7-19. Israel could not enter the promised land because of unbelief – God swore they would not enter his rest. The writer of Hebrews warns Christians not to repeat this mistake of hardening our hearts at God’s better word – Jesus Christ. He calls us to watch out for the poison of unbelief in the church congregation by devoting ourselves to daily ministry to our brothers and sisters in Christ!
