SSMT Verse 19 - Hebrews 2:1

Posted by Lisa Laree to Beer Lahai Roi

I knew last week what today's Siesta Scripture Memory Verse Team verse was going to be.

The moment I read the second chapter of Hebrews for Suzanne's Online Study, verse one jumped right off the page at me.

It was another verse on the theme of being individually responsible for knowing God's truth and being intentional about sticking with it:

We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.

If American Christianity has become an hour a week of First, Second and Last verse and a pastoral exhortation that just makes folks feel good about themselves, how can we be surprised that so many are drifting away?

We aren't paying attention, period, let alone paying careful attention.

Paying careful attention, it is implied, will protect us from wandering off into error...into that place where we do not know who among the religious leaders of our day are telling us truly what God wants us to hear...and who are telling us what they want God to be saying.

So.  Yeah.  Verse 19.  Because I need to be reminded to pay careful attention.
