We can miss out on entering God's rest (receiving our inheritance); hearing God's word must be united with faith in order to possess the greatest rewards of life.

Faith and obedience will allow us to enter God’s rest. God rested on the seventh day when he finished His works; this is a picture of our opportunity to complete the work God has given us.

The second generation entered God's rest when they crossed over and possessed the land. But there remains a rest (inheritance) other than the one that was available to the Israelites. That is the reward of possessing the inheritance of sharing in Christ's sonship.

Our high priest is sympathetic and available to help us persevere in our faith. We can have confidence to approach God because He is for us.
