Have you noticed how easy it is to drift while driving? Take your eyes off the road for just a second and you can drift out of your lane, drive over the rumble strip, and find yourself fighting the soft ground of the shoulder. I’ve heard a number of drivers tell how their accident resulted from an “imperceptible drift.”
Drifting in our faith is also pretty easy to do. All of us, no matter who we are, can drift into a sin, a bad habit, or an ungodly attitude. It’s alarming how a person can possess a fervent faith and then, within a matter of days, lose their fire and drift into a form of religion that is impersonal and cold. Spiritual drifting happens quickly and leads to serious complications and even danger.
On Sunday, I’m going to be teaching out of Hebrews 2:1: So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it.
I don’t want to drift in my faith in 2021 and I know you don’t either. But here’s the deal, while none of us intentionally sets out to spiritually drift, we’re all human beings and possess that natural tendency.
I hope you can join us in-person or online this Sunday as we consider some practical ways to avoid spiritual drift.
