Are You Paying Attention!

How many times have we heard that in our lives, growing up!

Well this morning follow along with me in Hebrews 2:1-4 as the writer of Hebrews says to us Are You Paying Attention.

It is crucial to keep a firm grip on the gospel of Jesus Christ, less we be drawn away by the enticements of the environment around us.

We need to understand that it can be easily taken from us by enticements and neglect that can come upon us.

If we but stop from our busy schedules and remember that we have been given a magnificent salvation, delivered by our heavenly Father and confirmed by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

If you would please let us honor the Word of God by standing and follow along with me as I read from our passage this morning.

Scripture

Therefore we must give the more earnest heed (Pay Attention!) to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.

[2]For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward,

[3]how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,

[4]God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will? Hebrews 2:1-4

Prayer

We must pay closer attention to what we have heard!

Why?

1. Lest we Drift Away Verse 1

Therefore we must give the more earnest heed (Pay Attention!) to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.

When we enter into the harbor of salvation we must tie up our boat to the rock of salvation less we allow ourselves to drift.

We must pay closer attention and become more serious about our Christian faith, because we are in danger of making a shipwreck of our lives.

PAY ATTENTION!

2. Signs are Everywhere Verse 2

[2]For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward,

When God sends a messenger, he is trying to get our attention. Yet there are some that just don’t see the need to pay attention.

There are signs all around us yet we neglect them, like when I worked in the public arena. There were Material Safety Data Sheets (They were called MSDS)

If you work in a public place or deal with goods for the public, then you are required to have MSDS on hand.

MSDS accompany all materials that are hazardous to your health.

On their pages they have:

1. They have warnings sprinkled throughout them

2. Some said "Caution, contact with voltage will cause

injury our death"

3. One had 15,000 Volts! Warning read "contact WILL

CAUSE DEATH"

4. They instructed us to pay attention.

We must pay closer attention to what we have heard!

Why?

3. How Shall we Escape? Verse 3

[3]how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,

When disobedience to the older covenant of the law was ignored, it brought swift judgment.

How much more will the disobedience of the New Covenant, the gospel of salvation, which was implemented by the Son of God who is much more superior than a messenger of God.
