The preacher of the book of Hebrews is writing to encourage the Christians to not give up or lose their faith during the difficulties they are facing for serving the Lord. In chapter 2 we noticed that the author is giving hope by showing how Jesus is the help that they need. But in chapters 3-4 the author is going to describe the rest that is available to them so that they will be encouraged in their faith. The word “rest” is found 12 times in chapters 3-4. So our series is called, “The Rest We Need.” But to understand the rest we need, the preacher must help us further understand our position with Jesus.
