God had promised the Hebrews a land "flowing with milk and honey," but most of them didn't get what was promised. We should be asking, "What happened?" What happened was repeated faithless responses by the people, which deepened their skepticism and made them finally unable to obtain their rest in the Promised Land. It's a cautionary tale for all of us. Yesterday we opened this message, Diseases of the Heart. The author of Hebrews is trying to convince his readers that they are in danger of repeating the mistakes of their ancestors. Jim has his Bible open to Hebrews 3, verses 5 and 6.
