Lord, you warn us of the dangers
That surround us every day.
There's salvation in the cross;
If we leave Christ, we are lost.
Use the warnings to preserve us
And to keep us in your service.
May we be among your sheep,
Those your warnings guide and keep.
Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.
--Hebrews 3:11, ESV
Note: This week I heard presentations by Dr. Tom Schreiner, who made a convincing case that the warnings in the New Testament are meant for believers and that the warnings help assure that we persevere to the end.
