Hebrews 10 (4)

When my two children were young, I explained our family rules to them. If they did not know about a rule, I would tell them the rule and not punish them. But, if my children knew about the rule and still disobeyed, I punished them.
When we become Christians, we learn about God’s rules in the Bible. We can’t say, “I don’t know what God wants me to do.” We can read the Bible and learn these rules. If we know these rules and still disobey them, God will punish us. God punished the Jews in the Old Testament when they disobeyed God’s Law. Our Bible Reading tells us that when a Christian turns away from Christ, he is not showing respect for the new agreement through Jesus’ death. “So think how much more punishment people deserve who show their hate for the Son of God — people who show they have no respect for the blood sacrifice that began the new agreement” (verse 29a).
Do not turn away from Jesus. Stay close to Him and obey His Word.
