Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 3:14

3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ - And we shall still partake of him and all his benefits, if we hold fast our faith unto the end. If - But not else; and a supposition made by the Holy Ghost is equal to the, strongest assertion. Both the sentiment and the manner of expression are the same as #Heb 3:6|.

    heb 3:1 wherefore holy brethren partakers of the heavenly calling consider the high priest of our profession CHRIST JESUS 3 for this man was counted worthy of more glory than moses inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honor than the house 4 for every house is builded by some man but he that built all things is GOD

    " ..... suffering is not joy ..... " Well, God's word says different, by none other authority than Paul. But then some discount Him because of what GOD gave him concerning women in Cor. Even men discount him because of this. Anyway, as to joy in suffering for Christ (after all, didn't He suffer for us?) Heb.12:2; Jas. 1:2; 2 Cor. 6:10; 2 Cor. 11:23-27, v. 30.

    Our house must be founded and built upon the Truth, if it is to stand firm to the end. We cannot start with a faulty foundation nor can we build with falsehood upon a good foundation but what has been begun in us in truth, must be all truth, or we will be rejected and cast away. This Word is given for a Light to follow, so that we may be saved: "If we continue steadfast unto the end!" implies a good and sure foundation, as well as a good and sure building of the structure, according to the same Spirit of Christ, as when we were first converted. "Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright for the end of that man is peace."
    Grace is a Gift-Faith follows as we make room for It.JOY is GOD'S STRENGTH. Suffering is not Joy. Being 'stedfast',to me, means we have to keep our supply of joyous strength daily refilled. Suffering, to me, is a lack of Joy:a gratitude list helps, praise for more, forgive yourself so you can go ahead a little lighter....ejune
