"Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it" (Hebrews 4:1).
Reaching the goal of heaven requires a healthy measure of old-fashioned determination. When we're choosing what kind of inner character we're going to have, we must choose to have traits like single-mindedness and stick-to-itiveness. We must be tenacious. When it comes down to it, we must be so determined not to miss out on heaven that we refuse to be deterred.
What is gossip? It is negative, unflattering words that when spread hurt the reputation of others. Sometimes gossip is made up out of thin air. Other times the bear facts related, might be true, but many significant factors are left out, thus leaving the wrong impression. Some gossip can be true but can serve no good purpose to pass it on to others. How does the Bible describe gossip? God’s Word often uses words like whispers, backbiters, and evil speaking.
Human suffering has been around since the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3:16-19). The causes are many: sin, accidents, natural disasters, illness, wars, violation of natural laws, hatred, persecution, jealousy, betrayal of confidence, death, etc. All people experience it to some degree and in various ways. There is no escape from the experience of suffering. Some people are embittered by it and lose their faith in God.
