Lest We Drift Away

January 4

“Therefore we must give the MORE EARNEST HEED
to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.
…how shall we escape
if we neglect so great a salvation…”
Hebrews 2:1, 3

“Lest we drift away…”

If you don’t eat, your body will become weak. If you don’t feed in the Word of God, your spirit will become weak, it’s a law just as sure as the other.

Neglect of your spiritual life will make you vulnerable to deception and to the lures of the world. As important as it is to eat every day, it is even more important to spend time with the Lord and feed in his Word — every day of our lives. Yet it’s the last thing on the priority list of most, and that could be because we don’t SEE the results as we ignore the daily reading of the Scriptures.

We live in the physical world and the way we eat will be reflected in the physical condition of the body. The spiritual realm is just as real, even though we don’t see it. You don’t see electricity, but you know it’s there. In the same sense, the condition of our spirit is very much the result of what we put into it.

Take the time to nourish your spirit in the Word of God; otherwise we’ll be found “neglecting so great a salvation.”
