Hebrews 2:1 “We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.” (NIV)
We must pay careful attention to what we hear so that we do not drift away. There are some things in life that we must pay attention to and there are some things that we need to pay closer attention to. These things require our attention because they are extremely important. Food, drink and sleep are things that we sometimes forget to pay attention to, not really, you see we pay attention to them because we need them, they are essential for us to survive. Now I can skip a few meals and not die, but after a few hours my body will let me know that it needs substance. The same is true regarding God’s word and our salvation. The writer of Hebrews is telling us to make sure that our salvation takes priority over anything else that we may have planned for today. You see, this salvation is what will keep us alive in the life to come. Considering the price that was paid for that salvation will help us pay closer attention.
