Drifting Away

We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.
Hebrews 2 2:1

Imagine floating down a lazy river in a canoe, the water is drifting slowly and steadily ahead. You have your radio on but you are tuned out thinking about what you are going to do tomorrow and who you are going to it with. The radio says there is a big storm approaching, you donít hear it because tomorrow and the big plans are being made in your head. The man who rented you the canoe told you about the water falls and what course to set in your canoe. He told you not to veer from the course because of rocks, waterfalls and wild animals. Not paying attention to the course and drifting down the falls you go.

Is this scenario stupid and far-fetched? Are we remembering what we read in the Bible, what our preacher and Sunday school teacher shared with us on Sunday? God has given us a course and a path; it is a precise and narrow path. Are we paying attention along the path? Are we calling it to memory daily? Is prayer without ceasing undoable because there are so many distractions out there? Are we so distracted we are heading toward the disaster of that waterfall we have been warned about?

When Peter got out of the boat to walk the water, Jesus told him to keep his eyes on him. Peter was distracted by the wind and went under. God told Moses to hold his hands up and he would win the battle. When he got tired he put his arms down and began losing the battle. Two others helped by grabbing Moses arms to help hold them up and gave him a rock as a chair to sit on. Do you allow others to help you when it is easier to give up and drift away?

Godís path is not hard but it is precise and narrow. He has given us the instructions we need to stay on course. There are a lot of temptations, distractions and disruptions that cause us not to hear and not pay close enough attention to Godís word, causing us to drift away. We must pay careful attention to Gods precise instructions, listen attentively, allow others to assist us. We must pay careful attention and stay the course and not drift away.

God Bless
