3:13 Instead, remind one another daily of your true identity; make today count! Do not allow callousness of heart to cheat any of you for even a single day out of your allotted portion.

3:14 What we have become in our union with Christ must be taken to its ultimate conclusion. Do not cancel out your confident start by making a poor finish. 
(Starting in faith then going back to the law of works.)

3:15 Every day is an extension of God's today; hear his voice, do not harden your heart. The stubborn rebellion of Israel brought them nowhere.

3:16 The same people who experienced God's mighty act of deliverance out of Egypt under the leadership of Moses were the very ones who rebelled.

3:17 They grieved him for forty years in the wilderness until they were reduced to nothing.

3:18 He vowed that their unbelief would preclude them from possessing the place of his promise. 
(His rest, based on the perfect restoration of his likeness revealed in man through Christ. Genesis 1:26,31, 2:1,2)

3:19 The point is this: even though they survived by supernatural means in the wilderness for forty years, they failed to grasp what God had in mind for them. Their own unbelief disqualified them. 
(You can experience God's supernatural provision and protection and yet remain outside his rest. The ultimate proof of faith is not experience of the supernatural, but entering into his rest. His rest celebrates his perfect work; it finds its definition and reference in Gen.1:31, 1 Kings 6:7 and Col.2:9,10. He longs for you to discover your own completeness and perfection as seen from his point of view. His rest is sustained in you by what he sees, knows and says about you in reference to the finished work of Christ.) ---The Mirror translation
