No Titus 3:16; No Philemon 3:16
Hebrews 3:16 (ESV)
For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those who left Egypt led by Moses?
 
Who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Surprisingly it is the people of God who saw God’s act of salvation. Surprisingly it is the people of God who were spared from the Angel of Death in the Passover. Surprisingly it is the people of God who crossed through the Red Sea from Egyptian slavery to safety. Surprisingly it is the people of God who entered into a covenantal relationship with the God of their salvation from the hand of Pharaoh.
 
John 3:16 is God’s ultimate promise of eternal salvation, who is it that rebels? Surprisingly, us! As sinners we flee from God. It is only through God’s Holy Spirit calling us through the Word, gathering us in His fellowship, enlightening with its truth, and sanctifying us through the Blood of Christ from the cross that we cease to rebel. Thanks be to God for His mercy and love as reflected in John 3:16.
 
Questions:
How do you rebel against God?
 
How does our rebellion stop?
 
Activity:
Spend some time thinking about the cross of Jesus and the fact He died for us while we were rebelling against Him. Say a prayer of confession and for peace through His forgiveness.
