How to Not Drift From Your Faith
Posted: Tuesday, October 31
Verse of the Day:
So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. (Hebrew 2:1)
We have an incredible program for kids called Bible Quiz. Elementary kids memorize trivia and verses from the Bible and compete against other churches in the local and national area to see who is better and faster at recalling the trivia. It’s pretty remarkable to watch 3rd graders quoting verses of the Bible and explaining the difference between Jesus’ humanity and deity. I was a Bible Quizzer from 2nd grade through High School and I learned more about the Bible through the program than in Bible College. The majority of what I know about the Bible came from this fun program I was in as a kid.
The author or Hebrews reminds believers to listen carefully to the truth we have heard so that we don’t drift away from our faith in Jesus Christ. I used to think that hearing sermons about the same subjects over and over again was mundane, but I’ve grown to appreciate each message because although I may already know the topic, the reminder of truth is always valuable.
The Christian walk is not a moment or even a season, it’s a lifestyle that lasts until out final day. Even if we have 5 decades of faithful service to God but at the end drift from the Truth, we’ll fall short. Hold on to the truth you’ve heard, the truth about God that changed your life. Hide God’s Word in your heart that you won’t sin against Him - it will always be the best decision you will ever make.
