Dangers of Drifting

Hebrews 2:1 "Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip."

Laws of the Drift:

You always drift down stream.

You can drift without realizing you are doing so.

It takes no effort to drift. When we stop battling we often start drifting.

Drifting cost you plenty. Sin takes you father than you want to go; keeps you longer than you will want to stay and will cost you more than you want to pay.

Drifting puts others in danger as well.

The closer to the “falls” you get the faster the current.

If you fail to stop drifting the trip will end in disaster.

How to know when you are drifting.

When you find you are reading Bible less than you once did.

When you find you are praying less than you once did.

When you find you are attending church less than you once did.

When you find you are sharing the gospel less than you once did.

When you find you are reading Bible less than you once did.

When you desire for worldly things is growing stronger.

When sin hold on you is increasing.

How to stop drifting!

Get out of the water until you are stronger.

Stop doing what you were doing when you started to drift.

Paddle once again against the tide.

Separate yourself from those who are drifting with you.

Enlist the help of those who are going the right direction.

Refocus on where you want to go.

Be sure you are anchored in Christ.
