Paying Attention to the Message of Jesus (Hebrews 2:1)

Paying Attention to the Message of Jesus (Hebrews 2:1)

"We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away" (Hebrews 2:1)

Jesus came to earth with an important message. The message of God's love and forgiveness. He has shown us the Father in a way that had not been previously been disclosed or understood. The book of Hebrews opens with this amazing truth, "In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe" (Hebrews 1:1-2). Today, we are reminded to pay close attention to the Son's message so that we do not become complacent and forget what we have heard.

How Shall We Escape If We Ignore Such a Great Salvation (Hebrews 2:2-3)

How Shall We Escape If We Ignore Such a Great Salvation (Hebrews 2:2-3)

"For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him" (Hebrews 2:2-3)

Part 1 of 2

I was five years old when I asked Jesus into my heart. I remember sitting in my bedroom with my mom and my brothers and sister as she explained the gospel to me in a simple way. I invited Him in to be my Savior that day, surrounded by my family. We all celebrated together, happy to know that each one of us belonged to God.

A Lesson from the Law (Hebrews 2:2-3)

A Lesson from the Law (Hebrews 2:2-3)

"For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him" (Hebrews 2:2-3)

Part 2 of 2

"Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?" (Hebrews 10:28-29)

When the law was given, it was put into effect and ratified by the angels (Acts 7:38; Acts 7:53; Galatians 3:19; Hebrews 2:1). It proved authentic and every act of disobedience against it was judged and received swift punishment. In fact one of the first offenses after the law was given was a man who was stoned to death because he was picking up sticks on the Sabbath Day, which was forbidden (Numbers 15:32-36). This went against the Law and He received the punishment of the Law, death. This is an extreme example but the point I am making is that the Law, which was put in place by angels, carried weight with God. So that each violation and disobedience received the prescribed punishment, how much more do you think you will be punished if you reject Jesus, the sole expression of God's glory? Hebrews reminds us, "It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God" (Hebrews 10:31).

Jesus; Endorsed by God, Approved by Signs and Wonders (Hebrews 2:4)

Jesus; Endorsed by God, Approved by Signs and Wonders (Hebrews 2:4)

"God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will" (Hebrews 2:4)

Part 1 of 2

In John 9, there is an account of Jesus healing a man born blind. As Jesus passed him, he was urged by compassion to stop and heal the man. He spat on the ground making mud with His salvia and put it on the man’s eyes. After this, Jesus sent the man to wash in the Pool of Siloam. The man came home seeing. When asked by the Pharisees how he could see, he related the story to them. Most were amazed and questioned whether or not this was the same man born blind. No one had ever heard of such a thing happening before. They even brought his parents to testify that this was their son who had been born blind. They couldn't argue that he now could see, so they questioned whether he was blind in the first place.

Proof that Jesus is the Savior (Hebrews 2:4)

Proof that Jesus is the Savior (Hebrews 2:4)

"This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will" (Hebrews 2:3-4)

Part 2 of 2

Here are four key truths to understanding that Jesus was sent by God as the Savior of the world. First it was announced by angels. Then it was confirmed by the Holy Spirit quickening the message to those who heard it. Then it was supported by the signs and wonders. And now, as believers, we are given the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
