Sunday Sermon Outline: Hebrews 4:1-13

“Truth and Good News”
Hebrews 4:1-13

Introduction:  2 Timothy 4:3-4; 1 Corinthians 14:33; 15:2; John 17:17; 8:43-47

     Prophets: Isaiah 59:12-15; Jeremiah 7:25-28; Daniel 9:13
     Psalms: Psalm 119:142-144
     Jesus: John 1:17; 8:31-32
     Apostles: 1 Timothy 2:4; 3:15; 1 John 2:4-5; 4:6

     Romans 2:8; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14; Romans 1:16-18; Luke 2:10-11; Romans 10:14-16

I.   Disbelief  vs. 1-2

     “Therefore, let us fear lest, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you should seem to have come short of it. [2] For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard.”

Jude 5

II.  Disobedience  vs. 3-7

     “For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, "AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST," although His works were finished from the foundation of the world. [4] For He has thus said somewhere concerning the seventh day, "AND GOD RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS"; [5] and again in this passage, "THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST." [6] Since therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of disobedience, [7] He again fixes a certain day, "Today," saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before, "TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS."

John 9:4

III. Diligence  vs. 8-13

     “For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. [9] There remains therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God. [10] For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. [11] Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall through following the same example of disobedience. [12] For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. [13] And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.”

Conclusion: Hebrews 1:1-2; James 1:18; Ephesians 1:13


Communion Text: John 4:34, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.”
