Hebrews 2:1 says, “We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.” I do not understand why the fly paper in the corner of my garage kept catching flying insects. I don’t know why because you would think that a fly would figure out from his fellow flies that this isn’t a safe place to land. You’ll get stuck here—don’t stop here, but inevitably the fly paper keeps catching flies. Satan’s traps are similar in that they are often subtle, but they have quite a stick to them.
You would think we might figure Satan’s traps out and do everything we can to help one another avoid the sin mistakes we have made. It’s like Satan says, “You can do this and be OK. You will not be there long enough to get hurt. You can do this and still be Ok with God.” That’s when the spiritual drift begins. Let us be careful not to drift away from what we have seen and heard. Mark it down, Satan will not tell you I want you to sever all of your Christian relationships and separate yourself from the church, but he will try to get you to drift away. The people that will go to Heaven are those who entertain no part of compromise of God’s Word. They are those who make no bargain with the Devil. Do not allow yourself to slip away from the salvation you have graciously received through Jesus. Do not ignore such a great salvation (Hebrews 2:3).
