Think about it

Today I start into Hebrews 2. In Hebrews one we learned of Christ's superiority to the angels. The author of Hebrews continues God's word to use telling us that we have to pay attention to what we hear. Let us read:
1Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. 2For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, 3 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, 4 while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
See...the message that we got from the angels was reliable, therefore imagine how reliable the words are from the Son of God himself! We must pay attention to these words. If we don't, we might drift away from them.

And we if we drift away from them (God's words), KNOWING that transgression and disobedience have their own retribution, if we neglect so great a salvation, what type of retribution do you think would be in hand for us? Think about it. Just think on that....
