Lest We Drift
Hello Partners and Friends!
We are thankful to God for you! It’s our greatest desire to bring the word of God to you so that you may be built up in Him and that you may walk in the word as a Champion 4 Christ.
This week we will focus on the scripture found in Hebrews 2:1-2. The word says, “Therefore, we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away. For if the word…”
In life, we will have trials and situations that come upon us on a daily basis. Sometimes those situations may be a minor event, at other times, those situations may seem a crushing event. But in every trial, we have hope! We have a part to play in obtaining the desired outcome, and Hebrews 2:1 gives us insight to that hope.
In Hebrews the Word tells us that we must give more earnest heed. Let us just take this first section of words. The word must is a command word that compels us into action. It is a champion word, and it requires us to play a big part in this scripture. We are commanded and compelled to do something. What are we commanded and compelled to do is to give more earnest heed.
The word earnest means in a more abundant degree or greater degree. The word heed means to bring near. So, in other words, we must give more of a greater degree and bring this item near to us. And what should we bring near to us? What we have heard. What we have heard is the word of God.
We must give greater degree of attention and bring the word of God near us in our lives so that we do not let it drift away or slip away from us.
What I really like about this scripture is not only is Paul giving us instruction on what we should do, but he is also letting us know, “Hey guys, things can slip in our lives; and if we don’t want things to slip, then we must give more earnest heed to the word of God.”
It’s that simple, Champions. Heed the word of God earnestly and things will not slip in our lives.
Father, I thank you for the wonderful partners and friends that you have placed in our lives. I thank you that You are their provider, their protection, their source of life and life more abundantly. I thank you, Lord, as they go throughout the weeks and months to come, that they will give more earnest heed to your word and your promises for their lives so that things may not slip in their lives. I also thank you that the eyes of their understanding is being enlightened as they seek your will and purposes for what you have called them too. I thank you, Lord, that they are surrounded in your protection and love. Bless them, Lord! Amen.
