A Final Charge (Part 1)

 Heb. 10:21-11:31

Dalton Gilreath

Think about…

I.                 Your Brethren, Heb. 10:24-25

Think about your brethren - Come to services – be here for your brethren and not just yourself

“But I don’t care what others think or about pleasing people”…Paul tried to please everyone

We must please everyone to edification as Christ did

Application: Be here for one another, be selfless like the Lord

A.     1 Cor. 10:31-33

B.     Rom. 15:1-3

II.               Your Soul, Heb. 10:26-31, 35

Think about the consequences and rewards

Falling back into sin is a terrible end – see = darkness, hear – screams and gnashing, feel = fire/burning, smell = burning brimstone/sulfur (rotten eggs), taste = grinding teeth and great thirst

Rewards are seeing – city of gold (pavement story) and God Himself, hear (angels singing), feel = joy/comfort/peace, smell = we can only imagine, taste = never hunger or thirst again

Application: Think about your soul’s eternal destination

A.     2 Peter 2:20-22

B.     1 Peter 4:13

III.              Abel, Heb. 11:4

Think about Abel who remained faithful despite family opposition

Family can’t come before God

He won’t leave you alone

Application: Don’t fall away because of family opposition

A.     Matt. 10:37

B.     Psa. 27:10

IV.             Enoch, Heb. 11:15

Think about Enoch whose humanity did not get in the way

Some might say they are only human and give up on fighting sin

Put on your big boy pants and fight don’t give up

A.     Rom. 3:23

B.     1 Peter 1:13-16
