Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

The Consuming Fire Heb. 12:25-29
Great talkers…and great listeners!
There are at least 5 warnings in the Book of Hebrews:
The danger of drifting away from our salvation commitment (2:1ff)
The danger of hardening our hearts through unbelief (3:7ff)
The danger of not growing; being content with immaturity (5:11ff)
The danger of willfully sinning when we know better (10:26ff)
Today’s text has the last major warning in the book:
The danger of refusing to _________________ to God.
God is speaking – are we listening? V. 25a
Turning from ________________ is worse than turning from law V. 25b
Whole lot of __________________ going on V. 26-27
Revelation 6:12-14 2 Peter 3:10-13
The Kingdom of God __________________ be shaken or burned V. 28-29
Ecc. 3:12-13 Col. 2:20-23
And so we have a challenge: to let heavenly priorities guide our earthly living while avoiding the _________________ of legalism and hedonism.
Don’t take your _________________ too seriously
1 Cor. 2:13b-15
__________________ your life around what really matters
__________________ when God speaks
Give one-___________________ of your time to rejuvenation
Receive and give ___________________
Serve God with reverence and godly ________________
I believe it boils down to this: those who fear God respect the _________________ he has imposed on us for our own good.
