A number of years ago an evangelist (believe it was Billy Sunday) declared that backsliding from our faith was rarely a blowout, but more of a slow leak. Today I was studying Hebrews 2 for Sunday, and noted verse one:
"We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away."
There's the danger - a slow drifting away from the Lord and His word - bit by bit we lose the poignancy of our relationship with and ministry for Him - find that we care less - find an emptiness inside.
So where are you on the drift-ometer? What will you do about it?
