Are You Drifting?

Are You Drifting! Hebrews 2:1-4 Main Point: We must guard against drifting in our relationship and devotion with Jesus, lest we find ourselves ignoring our Great salvation. ‘Drifting’ (pararheuo) = going along with the flow! (as in the current of a river – we never drift upstream!) 1. The safeguard to drifting is to ‘pay more careful attention’ (Give attention to, be attentative, take heed, to apply oneself – as in bringing a ship to dock or land.) *Hebrews 12:2 - Fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith! Re-focus! 2. Drifting is allowing other things to take the place of our devotion and discipleship. It happens slowly and imperceptively. *It moves from drifting to 'ignoring' such a great salvation v.1 It starts with allowing our focus on Christ to shift. We become spiritually lazy; we excuse, justify and deceive ourselves. Repent! 3. The danger is that our heart becomes hard toward God; and no longer hear His Spirit calling us to return! v.2 consequences – punishment/discipline (chp 12) Rev. 3:19
