Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

December 6 - Morning

"We must pay the most careful attention, therefore,
to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.
 For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience
received its just punishment,
 how shall we escape
if we ignore so great a salvation?

- Hebrews 2:1-2

Do Not Drift By the Target    

The writer of Hebrews says that the old covenant given to the Jews was:

  1. Communicated to Israel through angels
  2. “Binding” - bebaios, a legal term that meant it was unchangeable and was used as
    word for a legal guarantee.
  3. Violations were punished justly
  4. Disobedience was punished justly

Then, he reasons logically that if that were the case with this first inferior covenant that was
replaced with the superior New Covenant that was promised by Jeremiah (in Jer. 31:31) and
finally communicated to Jews and put into effect by the Son of God, then how much trouble
will the readers be in if they neglect this New Covenant. The writer asks his readers:

            “How shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation.”

Hebrews 2:2 says, “We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard,
so that we do not drift away.” The word “drift” comes from the Greek pararyomai  which is used
in other places to refer to a ring slipping from someone’s finger unknowingly. Because pararyomai meant “slip,” “drift” or “drift away” it provides a perfect image for the writer of Hebrews who is warning his readers to  “pay…attention…to what we have heard,” or pay attention to the message of the
Word of Truth. The Greek word prosecho, which is translated into English with “pay…attention,”
was a technical term referring to the skill of the captain of a ship bringing his vessel into dock
at shore without crashing into the dock or moving too slow which would allow the current or
the winds to move him off course.

Something to Ponder??

Columbus considered his discovery of the Western world to be part of God's plan in bringing about his millennial kingdom. Columbus wrote in his journal:

"God made me the messenger or the new heaven and the new Earth of which he spoke in the Apocalypse of St. John and he showed me the spot where to find it."

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I have the spiritual desire to remain focused on the goal that God has called me to?
Have I developed the spiritual skill and personal character to pay attention and complete the task?
  "Can a man scoop fire into
his lap without his
clothes being burned?
Can a man walk on hot
coals without his
feet being scorched?
So is he who sleeps
with another man's wife;
no on who touches
her will go unpunished."
- Proverbs 6:27-29
