20th Sunday After Pentecost – Epistle: Hebrews 3:12-19

Sunday October 14th, 2012

Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart,
leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another
every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be
hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have come to share in Christ,
if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.

As it is said, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts
as in the rebellion.”

For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those
who left Egypt led by Moses? And with whom was he provoked for forty
years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the
wilderness? And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest,
but to those who were disobedient? So we see that they were unable to
enter because of unbelief.

P: This is the Word of the Lord.
C: Thanks be to God.
