How Shall We Escape?
A Sermon on Hebrews 2:1-4
Warning Against Neglecting Salvation
Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard, while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. (ESV)
Superlative salvation; great in terms of AUTHORSHIP; great in terms of the alternative CALAMITY; it RECONCILES us to God; it makes us Gods CHILDREN; it defeats the POWER OF SIN; greatest of all - the WAY IT CAME; well worth talking about; give yourself no rest!
