TODAY Do not harden your hearts

So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice,8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion,

Hebrews 3:7-8a | NIV

15 As has just been said: “Today, if you hear his voice,do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”

Hebrews 3:15 | NIV

In my Bible readying today, I opened to Hebrews 3. I never noticed this before, but the exact same phrase is mentioned twice within 8 verses of each other. Usually, that means “pay attention”

As I googled to find an image of this scripture I learned it’s in Psalm 95 also!

15 As has just been said: “Today, if you hear his voice,do not harden your heartsas you did in the rebellion.”

And then I saw another picture of scripture, also in Hebrews

God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted: “Today, if you hear his voice,do not harden your hearts.”

Hebrews 4:7 | NIV

What?? 4 times ! In Old and New Testiment?!

That REALLY means pay attention!

Lord, let my heart be softened. Let us hear Your voice today!

Blessings,

SB

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
