In this chapter the Hebrew writer says that our Christian walk is like (a type) the journey the Israelites made for 40 years as they traveled towards Cannan. They broke away from Egypt and became a nation when they passed through the Red Sea, just as we broke away from the world and became part of God’s kingdom when we passed through the waters of baptism (Rom. 6:2-7). Yet, the majority that passed through the Red Sea did not make it to the Promised Land because they did not remain faithful to God. The Hebrew writer is warning that we must also remain faithful for the whole journey or we won’t make it to our Promised Land! It is not how you start that counts, but how you finish!!
