My daily journaling from God’s Word. SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Hebrews 2.
“For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so we do not drift away from it.” –Hebrews 2:1
For what reason? Because God has spoken to us in His Son (chapter 1). This message of the Son is of greater importance than that of angels, prophets or law-givers. This is God’s ULTIMATE message of salvation in His Son.
Most Christians don’t simply abandon the Lord in one dramatic step. They DRIFT away from the Lord little by little, not realizing what is happening until it’s too late. Therefore, we must pay very close attention to where we stand with the Lord and regularly check our bearings.
Daily seeking the Lord is the ONE ESSENTIAL THING to prevent drifting away from Him. The world’s temptations are so subtle. Seek Him and listen to Him with extraordinary care.
Father, keeping my soul close to You is the one thing that matters most. It’s so easy to drift–to be captured by the lure of the world. Help me guard my heart and listen carefully to Your word–to keep close to You always. Amen.
