Worship Preparation for May 5

May 2, 2019

We return Sunday to Hebrews 5:11-6:12.  Who are these people who have "tasted the heavenly gift and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted of the goodness of the Word of God and the powers of the age to come and have fallen away?"  Are these people who once were believers but have walked away from being faithful and are thus brought back under the wrath of God or are they people who gave at one time external and even visible evidences of belonging to Jesus but over time it became evident that they did not?  This issue is huge.  It demands careful reading of the text and a very clear understanding of the context.  We will settle in this text on Sunday and I want us to pray that we will all have eyes to see what God shows us and hear what He says to us.  Souls hang in the balance.
