Here is the most extended warning in the book of Hebrews so far. The awful possibility in view is sliding into unbelief, even after seeing God’s mighty work in salvation. It happened to Israel in the desert. And church history has been the story of the waxing and waning of real faith and Christ-like living. How unwise we’d be to imagine it could not happen to us. Two antidotes to spiritual drift:
- Don’t stop thinking about Jesus;
- Encourage one another.
