The Son Was Faithful
Christ Our Model of Faithfulness
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:1 - Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:2 - who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was faithful in all His house.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:3 - For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:4 - For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:5 - And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:6 - but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.[fn]
Be Faithful
(Ps. 95:7–11 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:7 - Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:8 - Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
In the day of trial in the wilderness,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:9 - Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me,
And saw My works forty years.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:10 - Therefore I was angry with that generation,
And said, ‘They always go astray in
their heart,
And they have not known My ways.’
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:11 - So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:12 - Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:13 - but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:14 - For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:15 - while it is said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
Failure of the Wilderness Wanderers
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:16 - For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:17 - Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:18 - And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 3:19 - So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
