4-50 Application for Dec 13-14, 2014 :: Hebrews 3:12-13

===

Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

Hebrews 3:12-13

===
In this verse, we are explicitly warned about two dangers in any Christian community – two bad things that can happen: That we might be lead away, falling from the living God and that we might become hardened by sin.

That this is a potential reality is the bad news. The good news is the writer of Hebrews has steps we can take to prevent it.

(1) We should take steps to make sure our leaders are real believers in our Father and His will. We should be led by people who want us to move towards God.

(2) We should each (not just the leaders) exhort each other, question each other, challenge each other in God’s Truth. And not once a year, or once every few months, but every day.

Have you done this with someone today?
