HOW WILL YOU ESCAPE?

Hebrews 2:1-15

Without obedience, you can have no covenant relationship with God because disobedience breaks fellowship with Him. Jesus said, “If you abide in My Word — hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them — you are truly My disciples” (John 8:31, TAB). He said that if we obey His teachings, He and the Father will come in and live within us (John 14:23). He said that if we obey, we will never see death (John 8:51). John said, “We know that we have come to know him if we obey his command” (1 John 2:3, NIV). HOW WILL YOU ESCAPE?

Satan’s strategy is to deceive you into thinking that it is impossible for any man to walk in one-hundred percent obedience to God. Do not listen to his lies. God has made it possible under the New Covenant. There is absolutely no excuse for Christians to allow any areas of disobedience to remain in their lives. God has given us the power through the Holy Spirit to walk in obedience to Him and keep His Word. Should we disobey and sin against Him, we have been granted permission to enter the Holy of Holies where we can come boldly into His presence and receive forgiveness. HOW WILL YOU ESCAPE?

  • Knowing that God has not changed, that He still requires His people to walk in one-hundred percent obedience to Him…
  • Knowing that God compares our acts of obedience to spiritual adultery and whoredom…
  • Knowing that the disobedient will not inherit the kingdom of heaven and that God’s wrath will be poured out upon us…
  • Knowing that God has made it possible for us, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to live in one-hundred percent obedience…

…How much more does God require of us who have entered into a covenant relationship with Him under the New Covenant?

For if the message given through angels (that is, the Law spoken by them to Moses) was authentic and proved sure, and every violation and disobedience received an appropriate (just and adequate) penalty, How shall we escape (appropriate retribution) if we neglect and refuse to pay attention to such a great salvation… (Hebrews 2:2-3, TAB)

Have you entered into the New Covenant with God? If so, how will you escape if you refuse to pay attention to such a great salvation? HOW WILL YOU ESCAPE?

Make this declaration:

I will walk in one-hundred percent obedience to God because He has made it possible for me to do so through the power of the Holy Spirit.
