The hardness of heart demonstrated by the Hebrews during their wilderness wandering is often representative of our own sinful wandering as we journey through this life toward our rest across the Jordan. Yet Christ, the fount of all blessing, grace, and forgiveness, gives hope to those who hold their confidence fast in him.
Psalm 95:1–7a – God has given us every reason to praise him as the rock of our salvation, the King above all gods, and the shepherd who guides and protects us along the way.
Hymn 190 Come, Christians, Join to Sing – And so we shall praise Christ our King both in this life and when we cross into our final rest, across the Jordan in heaven’s bliss.
