In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things…” (Heb.1:1-2 NIV) “We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.” (Heb.2:1 NIV)

The Son, Jesus Christ, has been given a kingdom that is continually growing and will never pass away: It is eternal. God is zealous for this kingdom to succeed and be lasting.(Is.9:6-7)

Through his Son, God has clearly shone us his love for mankind. “When we were without strength, Christ died for the ungodly.” (Is.53:4-6) This included all of us for “All have sinned.”

With the coming of Christ, God has made clear through him and his apostles the love and the purposes of God.  With the good news of the gospel, God is calling out a people from around the world, from every nation, to receive his free gift of eternal life and share in the world to come.

What are challenges that come that would cause us to drift away?  Situations or difficulties that we do not expect to happen; these can lead to unbelief or giving up.

Worries, riches and pleasures can cause compromise and we miss God’s best. The challenge is to hear God’s message, embrace it and with perseverance we will see lasting results. (Lu.8:15)  

The eternal God, who planned and then set his plan in motion, has spoken through his only begotten Son. We are to trust and follow him now. We will fulfil our part in his purposes and share in a world that will last forever.  Many are pushing it aside for the temporary satisfaction of a self-centered life. God has the better thing for you. Choose to hear him!
