Мы должны платить более пристального внимания, поэтому, на то, что мы слышали,,
так, что мы не отдаляться
Евреям 2:1 (NIV 1984)
Drift—To be carried along by currents of air or water
Ежедневно, I pray a scripture for the Moms in
Prayer women in leadership. Сегодняшняя Писание Евр 2:1 grabbed my
attention with its warning: If we do not pay careful attention to God’s Word,
we will drift away.
Picture with me a strong swimmer with a goal to reach
a certain destination. With great purpose and vigor he sets out, but somewhere
before he reaches that goal, he becomes distracted or grows weary. В настоящее время, вместо
of swimming purposefully toward его
goal—yet not exactly swimming далеко—he
lets his body go with the flow, go with the current. Before he knows it, he is
off course.
How easily that can happen to us. We start out
with purpose and vigor to follow God and to do the work to which He has called
нам. Somewhere along the line, хотя, we can grow weary and ever so subtly
drift away from the truths of God’s Word and His purposes for our lives. Быть
wary of these three currents:
       Current of Indifference: Мы
say to ourselves, does it really matter that I read the Word every день? After all these years, я думаю
I basically know what it says. Slowly but surely by simple neglect we lose the
discipline of refreshing our minds by reading Его mind each day. We lose touch with what God wants to say personally
to each one of us Cегодня.
           Current of Weariness: Мы
swim too hard for too long without taking rest breaks, without taking deeper
times with God. Our daily quiet time is rushed and rote, another item to be checked
off the “to do” list so we can get on with life and paddle wearily onward. We grow
ever weaker because we have not stopped to truly listen to God’s Word and ask
Him to let it penetrate our hearts and direct our days.

       Current of Distraction: Мы
quite simply find another “word” that captures our hearts, and we drift toward
it instead of staying true to God’s Word. Первоначально, it might even be a good
thing—a change of diet—but then it becomes an obsession and takes all our
attention … or a political passion that pulls us from being the kind and
compassionate people God asks us to be, no matter what … or a new hobby that
becomes our focus from morning until night, harmless in itself, but a grave
danger when it pulls us from our first Love.
Небесный Отец, help us to pay careful attention
to all You say in Your Word, так, что мы не отдаляться! В поле Имя Иисуса,
Тебя любят,

  1. This is a great reminder. I am most grateful for the availability of His Word, His Grace, His presencewhich keep me from the even worse dangers that follow drifting away- the unseen dangers of those open waters and perils that come with drifting unprotected into the wide open seas. I love the analogy so much I did a series about Faith Life Preservers…Спасибо тебе за это , Шарон. I love your heart for Him- and a reminder of what really mattersHis faithful heart for us. Agreeing with you in prayer.
