Day 3: Hebrews 4:6-13

Read: Hebrews 4:6-13 again.

Think: 

  • Verse 8 references the conquest of the land of Canaan under Joshua. According to that verse, was the conquest of Canaan the “rest” that God was talking about in Psalm 95:7-11 (quoted in Hebrews 3:7-11)?
  • According to verse 8, why can’t Joshua’s conquest of Canaan be the “rest” God was referencing in Psalm 95?
  • Verses 9-10 conclude that God’s rest is still offered to God’s people. Because this rest still remains, what does verse 11 command God’s people to do?
  • When verse 11a commands us to “make every effort to enter into that rest,” what is he really commanding us to do, in your own words?
