Enter God’s Rest


Exhausted? … Frustrated? … Tempted?

“… let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”  ~  Hebrews 4:16

Let the following questions help guide your preparation for Monday night’s study on Hebrews 4:

  • How would you define or describe the “rest” that God offers?
  • What does it mean to “have fallen short” of God’s “rest”?  (v. 2)
  • Who gets to experience this “rest”?  (v. 3)
  • How are God’s works “finished from the foundation of the world”?  (v. 3)
  • When is always the best time to respond to God’s Word?  (v. 7)
  • Why is Joshua introduced to the discussion in v. 8?
  • Unpack the descriptive adjectives used for the word of God in v. 12.
  • What is meant by the phrase, “who has passed through the heavens”?  (v. 14)
  • Compare and contrast 4:15-16 with 2:17-18 … similarities? … differences?
  • Distinguish between “mercy” and “grace.” (v. 16)

Scott H. is providing the dessert … which will be served at 7 pm … the study will start moments later.
