Do not let Your life Drift Away

Heavenly Father I praise You for Christian leaders and speakers who give wisdom for us to learn, meditate on, and then apply in our lives. I praise You for Christian Authors who take the time to be led by Your Holy Spirit to write books that help us to better understand how to serve You, or to learn of other’s testimonies to help us know we are not doing this alone. 

Holy Spirit the writer in Hebrews tells us we should be more attentive to what we hear so that we do not start to drift in life.  If we begin to drift in life we are beginning to neglect just how great our salvation and the payment for it is.  We need this anchor in our lives to truly take hold so that when the storms of life come we will not be pulled out into dangerous waters and lose sight of who we are in Christ or lose our grip on the hope that is within us.  

I have come to learn that “the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, righteously, and in godliness in this present world, as we await the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all lawlessness and purify for Himself a special people, zealous of good works.” [Titus 2:11-14]

Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given to me all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of God who has called me to His own glory and excellence, by which He has given to me exceedingly great and precious promises, so that through these things I might become a partaker of the divine nature and escape the corruption that is in the world through lust.  For this reason help me to make every effort to add virtue to my faith; and to my virtue, knowledge, and to my knowledge, self-control; and to my self-control, patient endurance; and to my patient endurance, godliness; and to my godliness, brotherly kindness; and to my brotherly kindness love.  For if all of these reside in me and abound, they will ensure that I will neither be useless nor unfruitful in the knowledge of Jesus Christ my Lord. Help me to diligently make my calling and election sure so that when I add all of these areas into my life I will not stumble and will be able to enter into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which will be abundantly provided for me.  In Jesus’ name, Amen. 2 Peter 1:3-11 MEV version
