We Must Pay Much Closer Attention

Hebrews 2:1-4

The writer is concerned for the spiritual condition of this church, so he gives the first of five warnings in the letter to Hebrews. By telling them not to neglect the gospel, he suggests that they could subtly and gradually move away from what Jesus has accomplished on their behalf. Such neglect is not a deliberate rejection of the gospel, but rather an undetected movement away from truth. He warns them to keep the gospel firmly in their minds so they don’t “drift away” from Jesus.
