Back To The Word

Hebrews 2:1-4

1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. {let...: Gr. run out as leaking vessels}

2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;

3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will? {gifts: or, distributions}

1 Corinthians 13:11 says: “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” {thought: or, reasoned} {put away: Gr. vanish away}

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man I put away childish things.

When you were a child, you spake as a child, you understood as a child, you thought as a child, but when you became a man or a woman, you hopefully, put away childish things.

Church, it is time that we become all that we can become in Christ Jesus, it is time that some of us get off of the milk and it is time for some of us to get on the meat of the Word.

It is time that we start to grow up in the things of God.

It is time that, we as a church and as a people of God, get back to the Word.

Hebrews 2:1 says: Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. {let...: Gr. run out as leaking vessels}

We need to give an earnest heed to the things which we have heard, we don’t want to let them slip from our lives.

We don’t want to let them slip; In the Greek let means run out as leaky vessels.

The question this morning is, “What have we heard?”

Have we heard John 3:16 and 17?

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Have we heard that Jesus died for our sins?

Hebrews 12:1-3

1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. {author: or, beginner}

3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

This is referring to the Old Testament Saints who looked forward to the coming promise, who is the Lord Jesus Christ and what He would do at the Cross to redeem mankind.

As a Christian, I am also in this race that has been run by a great many Saints who have overcome the things of this world, and have placed their eyes on the Author and Finisher of our faith.
