So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
(Hebrews 3:19 (NIV))
This passage is the culmination of an example of those who have fallen short in the belief category. The writer was referring to the exodus from Egypt and how they quickly fell into disbelief. Even after seeing the miracles that God performed to free them from bondage in Egypt, they quickly fell into a mindset where they did not believe that God could see them through to the promised land. Because of their lack of belief, they were not able to enter into God’s promises.
I love the parallels that God uses!
Ever since Jesus came into the world, we have been promised salvation. We have been promised eternal life with the Lord. There is only one thing that we have to do to have this wonderful gift of grace. We must believe!
We must believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior and all that God promises is ours. With this belief comes the ability to enter.
Will you be able to enter?
