This is a particularly rich sermon by Earl Davis. His main point is that no matter how challenging or difficult the present may seem, we are moving irresistibly to a better future. He says 'better' because, as he understands the term, the Holy Spirit ("the whole healthy life, life with values and standards, life with purpose, life healthy and vigorous with its eye on some better tomorrow, some better age, some better world") is ever moving in us and about us, unexhausted and dynamic." The lesson from Hebrews 3 is again about working through a discouraging time.
