“Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard…” Hebrews 2:1

Verse one presents the first of five admonitions given to us in the book of Hebrews. Note that Paul says “we ought to give” and “we have heard!” Paul includes himself as needing this exhortation. In Hebrews 2 we find the pronoun “we” and “us” eight times. He begins Chapter three with: “Wherefore holy brethren…”

Therefore, he is speaking to believers in verse three when he asks, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation…” He did not say if we reject, but rather, if we neglect. He is not dealing with lost sinners in this verse - he is speaking about believers “neglecting” so great salvation. You and I need to thank the Lord every day for the great salvation that we have in Christ. Let’s be very careful not to allow these blessed truths to “slip” (vs.1) from us.

We sing the hymn, “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” and well we should. Robert Robinson, author of the hymn, had been saved under the preaching of George Whitfield. He grew in the Lord and eventually became a pastor with a fruitful ministry. But then, he began to neglect spiritual things. The result? He lacked peace in his soul, resigned the pastorate and began to travel. On one of his trips he met a spiritual lady and she asked him about a particular hymn. “What do you think of this hymn?” He looked at it - it was the hymn that he had written. The Holy Spirit was speaking to him, and with a broken spirit and heart he told her that he was the one who had written those very words, and that he had gotten far away from the Lord. The woman then quoted from the second line of the hymn, “Streams of mercy never ceasing, calls for songs of loudest praise…” And then she told him, “You know, these streams of mercy are still flowing.” Robert Robinson was broken that day, and restored back into fellowship.

We must tell it like it is - it is easy to neglect - so many believers do. Please, today as you read this, examine your heart. Are you letting the blessings “slip?” Are you neglecting spiritual truth and blessing by not putting them into consistent action?

“Come thou fount of every blessing, Tune MY heart to sing thy grace;…”
