The rest of Christians is attained by faith.
Hebrews 4:1 Let vs feare therfore, lest eny of you (forsakynge þe promes of entringe into hys rest) shulde seme at anye tyme to haue bene disapoynted. Hebrews 4:2 For vnto vs is it declared, as well as vnto them. But it proffyted not them, that they hearde the worde: because they whych hearde it, coupled it not with fayth. Hebrews 4:3 For we which haue beleued, do enter into his rest, as he sayde. Euen as I haue sworne in my wrath: they shall not enter into my rest. And that spake he verely longe after that the workes were made, and the foundacyon of the worlde layde. Hebrews 4:4 For he spake in a certayne place of the seuenth daye, on thys wyse. And God dyd rest the seuenth daye from all hys workes. Hebrews 4:5 And in thys place agayne: They shall not enter into my rest. Hebrews 4:6 Seynge therfore it foloweth, that some must enter therinto, and they (to whom it was fyrst preached) entred not therin for vnbelefes sake, Hebrews 4:7 he apoynteth a certayne daye after so longe a tyme sayinge in Dauid (as it is rehearsed) this daye yf ye wyll heare hys voyce, harden not your hertes. Hebrews 4:8 For yf Iosue had geuen them rest, then wolde he not afterwarde haue spoken of another daye. Hebrews 4:9 There remayneth therfore yet a rest to the people of God. Hebrews 4:10 For he that is entred into hys rest hath ceased also from his awne workes, as God dyd from his. Hebrews 4:11 Let vs study therfore to entre into that rest, lest eny man fall after the same ensample of vnbelefe.
The power of God's Word.
Hebrews 4:12 For the worde of God is quycke, and myghty in operacion, and sharper then eny two edged swearde: & entreth through, euen vnto the diuidynge a sonder of the soule and the sprete, and of the ioyntes and the mary: and is a discerner of þe thoughtes and of the intentes of the herte: Hebrews 4:13 nether is ther eny creature that is not manifest in the syght of him: But all thinges are naked and open vnto the eyes of him, of whom we speake.
By our high priest Jesus the Son of God, subject to infirmities, but not sin,
Hebrews 4:14 Seynge then, that we haue a great hye prest which is entred into heauen (euen Iesus the sonne of God) let vs holde the profession. Hebrews 4:15 For we haue not an hye preste, which cannot haue compassyon on oure infirmities: but was in all poyntes tempted, lyke as we are: but yet with out synne.
we must and may go boldly to the throne of grace.
Hebrews 4:16 Let vs therfore go boldely vnto the seate of grace, that we maye obtayne mercy, and fynde grace to helpe in tyme of nede.
