Observations from today’s readings and today’s S-WOD, Friday, 13 September 19:
Hebrews 2:1, 3 — “Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it…. how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? ”
You must pay very close attention to God’s word, not just casually reading it but meditating upon it and applying it each day. We are always in danger of drifting away from Jesus’ side. Grace is not a license to be complacent; quite the contrary, grace should compel us to strive for holiness with all our might. The casual Christian doesn’t really understand the value of grace. If you were gifted a $200,000 car, would you care for it differently than you would an old beater car? How much more valuable is the grace you have received through the blood of Jesus? How do you treat this magnificent gift from God? The Bible says that carelessly continuing in sin is trampling on the blood of Jesus. (Hebrews 10:29)
“Cross” Fit S-WOD (Spiritual Workout of the Day) – 13 September 19: Today, show appropriate appreciation for the grace you have received in Jesus, and share your joy with others.
