Preparing for the Sermon - Heb. 3:12-19

The Book of Hebrews square

Prepare your heart for the Sermon by looking through these suggestions that will assist you in making the most of our time together hearing God's Word.

You will find suggestions for thinking more critically through the passage, meditating more intently on the text, and prayerfully seeking wisdom to deepen your understanding of the passage to be preached this Sunday.

Carefully Think

  • How do you think that this passage relates to the previous section of Hebrews?
  • Is verse 14 teaching works righteousness? How would you explain this to someone else?
  • What is the sin that this passage is trying to keep us from committing?
  • Why is the example of the Israelites in the wilderness significant for us today?

Prayerfully Meditate

  • How is the deceitfulness of sin ‘hardening’? Have you ever experienced that? How?
  • Why is it significant that those who came out of Egypt provoked God in the wilderness?
  • What is the punishment for those who were disobedient? Why is it important for us today?
