The rest of Christians is attained by faith.
Hebrews 4:1 Let vs feare therfore leste anye of vs forsakinge the promes of entringe into his reste, shoulde seme to come behinde. Hebrews 4:2 For vnto vs was it declared, as well as vnto them. But it profiteth not them that they hearde the worde, because they which hearde it, coupled it not wyth fayth. Hebrews 4:3 But we whiche haue beleued, do enter into his reste, as contrarywyse he sayde to þe other: I haue sworne in my wrath, they shal not enter into my rest. And that spake he verely longe after that the workes were made, and the foundacion of the worlde layde. Hebrews 4:4 For he spake in a certaine place of the seuenth day, on this wyse: And God dyd reste the seuenth daye from all his workes. Hebrews 4:5 And in this place againe: They shall not come into my reste. Hebrews 4:6 Seynge therfore it foloweth that some must inter therinto, and they to whom it was fyrst preached, intred not therin for vnbeleues sake: Hebrews 4:7 Againe he appointeth in Dauid a certaine present day after so longe a tyme, saiynge as it is rehearsed, this daye yf ye heare his voice, be not harde herted. Hebrews 4:8 For yf Iosue had geuen them reste, then woulde he not afterwarde haue spoken of another day. Hebrews 4:9 There remayneth therfore yet a rest to the people of God. Hebrews 4:10 For he that is entred into his reste doth cease from his owne workes, as God dyd from his. Hebrews 4:11 Let vs study therfore to enter into þe reste, leste anye man falle after the same ensample, into vnbelefe.
The power of God's Word.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quicke and myghty in operacion, and sharper then anye two edged swerde, and entreth through, euen vnto the diuiding a sonder of the soule and the spirite, and of the ioyntes and the marie, and iudgeth the thoughtes and the ententes of the herte: Hebrews 4:13 neyther is there anye creature inuisible in the syght of him. For all thinges are naked and bare vnto the eyes of him, of whom we speake.
By our high priest Jesus the Son of God, subject to infirmities, but not sin,
Hebrews 4:14 Seyng then that we haue a great hye prieste, which is entred into heauen (I meane Iesus the sonne of God) let vs holde our profession. Hebrews 4:15 For we haue not an hye prieste, whiche can not haue compassion on our infirmities, but was in all pointes tempted, lyke as we are, but yet without sinne.
we must and may go boldly to the throne of grace.
Hebrews 4:16 Let vs therfore go boldely vnto the seate of grace, that we may receiue mercye, and fynde grace to healpe in time of nede.
