Hebrews 2 - Warning to Pay Attention

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

-          The title of this message is warning to pay attention

-          A Warning means that there is consequences if we do not pay attention

-          we must pay the most careful attention

o   notice the language how this takes it up a notch

-          therefore, to what we have heard

o   we have heard the word of God

o   it's important

o   it's serious

o   it's true

o   it's life changing (it's eternal life changing)

-          so that we do not drift away

o   there are currents in the world just like the ocean

o   You're constantly pulling us in a direction that you don't want to go

o   the only way you can stay anchored is by staying in God's word

§  if you fail to stay in God's word the anchor is lifted and you will drift into sin

2 For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, 3 how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? 

-          The message that was spoken through angels was binding

o   when people didn't listen to the angels that spoke to them they were toast

o   1/3 of the angels in heaven were cast down to the earth for not listening

-          and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment

o   this means each and everyone (God is keeping track)

o   there will be punishment for every sin or evil deed

o   this includes Commission and omission (doing that which you should not; or not doing that which you should)

-          how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation

o   we heard the gospel of Jesus Christ

o   we learned that we could be forgiven for our sins if we repent

o   we learned that by faith in Jesus Christ and believing in our heart that God raised him from the dead we shall be saved

o   after hearing this great truth, we have no further excuse

o   we are now fully accountable

This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. 4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

-          This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord

o   God's word told us these great truths from the beginning

o   countless prophecies about the coming Messiah Jesus Christ

o   then the Lord Jesus Christ came and died in the cross and rose again to prove who he was (he told us and then he did it)

-          was confirmed to us by those who heard him

o   these would be people who had direct interaction with the Lord Jesus Christ

o   they would be giving testimony of what they saw and heard
