Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 12:28


12:28 Therefore let us, receiving - By willing and joyful faith. A kingdom - More glorious than the present heaven and earth. Hold fast the grace, whereby we may serve God - In every thought, word, and work. With reverence - Literally, with shame. Arising from a deep consciousness of our own unworthiness. And godly fear - A tender, jealous fear of offending, arising from a sense of the gracious majesty of God.

    Nichole, that is a very good question! We fall from grace when we choose the world and it's ways above GOD and the values He requires us to live by. GOD's will MUST be preeminent! That means His will comes before all else, even those fleshly desires we believe we must fulfill.
