Warning signs are part of everyday life.
Orange and white barricades identify holes in the road.
They are not invitations to fall in, but warnings to avoid such a fall. In the same way, we find warnings throughout the book of Hebrews. Each warning serves as a motivation to apply the doctrinal teaching set forth in order to live a life that is pleasing to the Lord. These warnings expose the pitfalls
that are before us on the way to the Celestial City. We mustgive heed to them if indeed we are pilgrims on that eternal journey. Dr. James P. Boyce taught, “The doctrine of the final perseverance of the saints teaches that those who are effectuallycalled of God to the exercise of genuine faith in Christ will certainly
persevere unto final salvation.” He points out that the reason for this is “not to any excellence or power in the believer” but “due to the purpose and power of God and the grace which he bestows.” Having said that, some would consider that a person need only profess faith in Christ then he is able to live his life any way he
desires since God will preserve him. But this is an arrogant misunderstanding of this doctrine, for as Dr. Boyce explains, the Lord “does not act independently of [the believer’s] co-operation,but leads [him] unto salvation through [his] own perseverance in faith and holiness” [Abstract of Systematic Theology, 425-426].
