Being Careful Not to Drift Away - Hebrews 2:1

Giving Careful Attention to our Faith So We Don't Drift Away - Hebrews 2:1

Artist Salvador Dali claimed that mini-naps (less than a minute long) restored and refreshed his creativity. 

Giving Careful Attention to our Faith So We Don't Drift Away - Hebrews 2:1To assure he didn't drift into a deep sleep, Dali held a key in his hand, placed a plate on the floor below it, and fell asleep. When the key dropped from his hand and clanged against the plate, he'd wake up. 

The slipping key alone might have awakened Dali, but he added the plate as a safeguard. 

Hebrews 2:1 tells us to pay "careful attention" to Bible teaching "so that we do not drift away." 

Careful attention means we don't simply trust ourselves to stay alert. We add these "keys" to wake us should we begin to drift:

Reading God's Word.  James 1:25
Obedience.  James 1:22-24
Regular Christian fellowship. Hebrews 10:24-25
Bible study. 2 Timothy 2:15
Prayer. Philippians 4:4-7

Take time today to make sure you have these keys in hand.
