Evil Heart of Unbelief  Hebrews Chapter 3: Part 3

08 November, 2021

Hebrews 3: 12-15 ‘ See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. As has just been said: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”

Exhortations from the above verses:

1. Do not have an evil heart of unbelief

A heart of unbelief is called an evil heart. Evil includes lust, sin, thoughts of murder and more.

2. Do not depart from the living God because of your unbelief

When you have faith and completely trust in God you are connected with him. But the moment you start doubting him, that connection loosens. You become disoriented.

3. You need to exhort each other daily

We need to strengthen each other. We need to have good relationships with others and help them become stronger in the belief in God.

4. Do not be hardened by sin’s deceit

Sin looks enticing on the outside but it is poisonous on the inside. Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death.

Matthew 13:22 ‘The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful.’

Luke 21:34 ‘“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.’

5. Hold the beginning of your conviction firmly to the end

Hold firmly to the belief till the end. And you will have a share in all of Christ’s blessings.

6. Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.

Today is your day, don’t wait for tomorrow.

James 4:13-15 ‘Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
