Hebrews 3:7–19 NIV84
7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice, 8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert, 9 where your fathers tested and tried me and for forty years saw what I did. 10 That is why I was angry with that generation, and I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray, and they have not known my ways.’ 11 So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.’ ” 12 See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. 14 We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first. 15 As has just been said: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.” 16 Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt? 17 And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert? 18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed? 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.

1. Today you will hear His voice

You have the choice to yield to Him
Do not harden your hearts
Sin leads to hardened hearts
Rebellion is a result of hardened hearts

2. Testing times will come to us all

The Israelites were tested in the desert
They chose not to belief
They chose to turn from God
They heard and rebelled
Just because things look impossible to us doesn’t mean that they are impossible for God
God can get angry with those who do not listen to Him

3. Nothing good comes from disobedience

It causes anger
It causes bitterness
It causes unbelief
Unbelief keeps us from the Promises of God

4. Be faithful because He is always faithful

God keeps every promise
Be faithful by encouraging others
By praying for one another
By staying in the family
By helping those that fall
Believe His Word
Joshua and Caleb entered the Promised Land because they heard God and believed
