The Turning-away Heart

Pastor Jay continues his “Guard Your Heart” series this week with a sermon titled “The Turning-away Heart,” from Hebrews 3:7-10.

Hebrews 3:7-10 (ESV)

Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, where your fathers put me to the test and saw my works for forty years. Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart; they have not known my ways.’

Make sure your heart does not turn back.
