Hebrews: Where Belief and Actions Connect
Hebrews 10:26-31 26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
What is this willful, deliberate sin that has such terrible results?
This kind of sin includes three areas of focus.
-This includes refusing to follow God instead of His leading.
-It is to insist that our efforts to serve God ought to be accepted by him, even though he has said they are not acceptable.
-This is to treat with indifference, which is the cruelest form of hate, the pleadings, wooing, and leadings of the Spirit of God.
