We must, therefore, pay even more attention to what we have heard, so that we will not drift away. Hebrews 2:1 HCSB
When I worked for the Missouri Baptist Convention, my family and I lived on a small lake. We had a flat bottom fishing boat that we would take out on the lake to do some fishing. At times we would throw the anchor overboard to keep us anchored in one spot. Without the anchor, we would drift aimlessly away with the wind and current.
As believers we need to be careful to listen and do what Jesus taught. Satan is alive and works hard to create distractions to keep believers from doing what is right. If we as believers are are not anchored in Jesus Christ and His teachings, it is easy to drift away and end up in a place we never intended.
Challenge: Are you anchored in Jesus Christ and His teachings? Satan works to gradually pull you away from Jesus. Be careful to spend time in God’s Word and in prayer each day so you can stay anchored in Jesus Christ. If you pay close attention and follow His teachings, you can be assured you will not drift away.
