Passage: Hebrews 4:1-7
The Good News of the Son of God
It is bad news that the wrath of God has been justly kindled and it is even worse news that some will not escape the pouring out of that wrath because they persist in disobedience. But it is good news that the "promise of entering his rest still stands." God has not given up on all people and still offers rest to though who will persist in faith.
"For good news came to us" through the Son of God. He offers anyone who will believe in his name, an escape from the wrath of God. By paying the penalty of our disobedience, he appeased the wrath of God. Therefore God's wrath is no longer a fear for those who have put their faith in the Son of God.
"Since therefore it remains for some to enter it," we should rejoice. Take joy in the grace offered to sinners who repent. Do not reject the kindness of God, but instead give your life over to the Son of God and be saved from the penalty of your sin.
