Neglect

Hebrews 2:3 stopped me again this morning.  I have written about this verse and this topic once before, but at this time of the year it bears another look.
What questions should we ask as we approach this new year?  Thoughts at DTTB.
It is clear from the Word that we are justified by faith and not by works.  It is also clear that the work of Christ completed us before God Colossians 2:9 – 10.  It is also clear that we are exhorted to work out our salvation with fear and trembling Philippians 2:12.  James 2:17 – 26 tells us that faith should have some evidence in our lives.  In Acts 11:26 we read that the disciples were called Christians for the first time in Antioch.  Hum.  There is a lot here that I would like to address…  In Acts 17:11 we read that it is noble minded to search the Scriptures and in 2 Timothy 2:15 we are exhorted – well the word in the original is translated “make every effort,” “be diligent,” and “eager” – to present ourselves to God.

So with all that in mind – we could put a lot more in the bucket – what would it mean to neglect our salvation?  A thought as we approach the beginning of a new year, why not ask the Lord to show you what that means for you this next year?

Personally I do not want to stand before Him and find out that I was neglecting my salvation.
