1 So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. 2 For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished. 3 So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak? 4 And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.
As believers we must be careful to pay attention to the truth we've heard so we won't drift away into false teachings. This involves focusing our minds, bodies, and spirits on the Word of God. This focus means not only hearing but obeying. We must listen carefully and be ready to carry out God's instructions for our lives.
