Hebrews 10:26,27 – Rejection (August 14)

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Sunday. August 14th. The first day of the Hebraic week.

Our verses today are Hebrews 10:26, 27.

Hebrews 10:26
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.

Many have asked me about this verse out of concern that they may have fallen from grace. But there is a difference in “deliberately sinning” from “falling to a temptation.”

Many say “But Steve, I deliberately sinned when I fell to the temptation.” But here is the difference. When you fall to temptation, you are remorseful afterwords. Yet, one who deliberately sins without even a temptation, carries no remorse afterwards. They deliberately choose to sin with no desire for obedience. See the difference? It’s rejection verses failing. It’s walking the opposite direction verses falling in the right direction. The verses that immediately follow show this is about rejection.

28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot,…”

Rejection verses falling.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
