DRIFTING PDF Print

“Therefore, we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.”  Hebrews 2:1 ESV

Have you ever laid on a raft, closed your eyes and just let the waves take you wherever?  If so, you probably only did it once – because the currents within the gulf or the oceans are intensely strong and they have a tendency to sweep you away quicker than you ever imagined.

Spiritual Drifting is even more dangerous!

Drifting leaves one at the mercy of the prevailing currents – and the current of this world can lead us farther astray than we ever imagined.  The longer we drift, the greater distance we find ourselves from God’s presence.  This is treacherous, because it’s within God’s presence that we find the necessary provisions for living the Spirit-filled life of a believer.

Drifting may simply start out as a desire to disconnect for a moment – to let go of perceived responsibilities and take a well deserved break.  After all, God is all about rest . . . right?

Here’s the potential problem: once we step away – we may be swept away . . . carried quicker and farther than we ever thought possible!

Drifting from worship and/or the Word, potentially diminishes our ability to connect.  Without connection, we lack the power and passion needed to overcome.  This leads to neglect – as we begin to neglect God’s presence.

Where are you headed?  Do you even know?  Are you trapped in a powerful current – being sucked further from God?

My prayer is that you stop – and begin searching for a direction of purpose, today.

– Dale
