A Hardened Heart

Pastor Jay continues his “Guard Your Heart” series this week, with a sermon titled “A Hardened Heart”, based on Hebrews 3:14-15.

Hebrews 3:14-15 (ESV)

For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. As it is said,
“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

The hardened heart is dangerous.

  • The hardened heart resists the obvious hand of God.
  • The hardened heart is insensitive to God’s law.
  • The hardened heart leads to calamity.
  • The hardened heart is missing out on salvation.
  • The hardened heart will experience God’s wrath.
  • The hardened heart will still yield God’s glory.
  • The hardened heart can also affect those who believe.
