Hebrews 4…Faith, Work, Rest

 "Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” Hebrews 4:11

Jesus said to do business until he comes.  Paul said to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.  The writer of Hebrews reminds us that we have a job to do.  We must live by faith in obedience to the word of God.  IN fact, we are to be diligent about this work with the right heart (wanting to do it, not having to do it).  However, we have Jesus to help us with the grace to do all of what he commands.  And we also have him to go to and  plead for mercy when we fall short.  It’s the ultimate insurance plan.  HE is our judge and our defense attorney as he was for Joshua in Zechariah 3.
