希伯來書4:1-7

4:1 我們既蒙留下,有進入他安息的應許,就當畏懼,免得我們(原文是你們)中間或有人似乎是趕不上了。
4:2 因為有福音傳給我們,像傳給他們一樣;只是所聽見的道與他們無益,因為他們沒有信心與所聽見的道調和。
4:3 但我們已經相信的人得以進入那安息,正如上帝所說:「我在怒中起誓說:『他們斷不可進入我的安息!』」其實造物之工,從創世以來已經成全了。
4:4 論到第七日,有一處說:「到第七日,上帝就歇了他一切的工。」
4:5 又有一處說:「他們斷不可進入我的安息!」
4:6 既有必進安息的人,那先前聽見福音的,因為不信從,不得進去。
4:7 所以過了多年,就在大衛的書上,又限定一日,如以上所引的說:「你們今日若聽他的話,就不可硬著心。」

Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. 2 For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed. 3 Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said,
"So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.'"
And yet his works have been finished since the creation of the world. 4 For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: "On the seventh day God rested from all his works." 5 And again in the passage above he says, "They shall never enter my rest."
6 Therefore since it still remains for some to enter that rest, and since those who formerly had the good news proclaimed to them did not go in because of their disobedience, 7 God again set a certain day, calling it "Today." This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted:
"Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts."

要得上帝的安息,就必須是聽從上帝話語的人,不可以心存悖逆!正如作者引用詩篇95篇大衛的詩句:「你們今日若聽他的話,就不可硬著心」。這裡的「硬著心」就是悖逆的「石心」,就是永遠不承認自己是罪人,以為靠自己的行為會蒙上帝喜悅的人!而人必須要在聖靈的工作下,才會有一顆順服的「肉心」,是柔軟常常願意在上帝認罪的心,總覺得自己一無可誇、一無所有、一無所是,只能靠耶穌基督!


有許多自稱為基督徒的,一信主就認為自己已經完全,不用常常認罪,不用常常悔改!更用自己已經信靠主耶穌,就認為自己不再會犯罪了,不需要再承認自己是罪人,反正耶穌已經讓我永遠為義了!這樣的想法是違背一次得救永遠得救的教義,這是自我欺騙!我們在世界,就是會犯罪,就是需要一次再一次讓耶穌基督的寶血來塗抹,需要一次再一次得認罪,直到離開世界或主耶穌在來的時候!

也唯有一次再一次認罪的人,才能永遠感受到基督的恩典是新鮮的,祂的寶血是永遠有功效的!因為不管什麼時刻,我們都需要在主面前求寶血遮蓋,好可以站立在父上帝的面前,得享安息!
