The writer of Hebrews was burdened that the recipients of this letter might drift from Christ and find themselves spiritually shipwrecked; perhaps eternally lost in the sea of God’s just wrath. And so he writes to exhort them to pay attention. Whatever deficit they claimed to have when it came to the ability to stay faithful to Christ, nevertheless the writer tells his readers that they were to pay much closer attention to the things they had “heard.” They were responsible not to drift.
As we return to this passage this morning we will pick up where we left off last week. We diagnosed the problem of spiritual drift and looked at some of its causes. We also noted the dangerous and even eternally damning consequences of such drifting. This morning we will go further and note the means to overcome this problem; means that have everything to do with the salvation of our soul. If you are suffering from “spiritual ADD” then three issues must be addressed.
