DRIFTING WITH THE CURRENT

We don’t have to do one thing to drift with the current, do we? It happens without our doing anything. We can lay back and relax and watch the world go by.

Hebrews 2:1 Weymouth says, “For this reason we ought to pay the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, for fear we should drift away from them.” He also comments, “Drifting is an unconscious process. Often it is not until we are actually on the rocks that we know that we were in danger.” And Westcott comments, “We are all continually exposed to the action of currents of opinion, habit, action, which tend to carry us away insensibly from the position which we ought to maintain.”

Conversely, it takes concerted effort and untiring strength, conviction and purpose to go in the right direction, which most times is against the current of this world.

I am sure you are living against the grain of this society. Keep standing strong. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t cave in to the easy way. You may receive scoffing and contempt from family members and people around you, but put your shoulders back and lift up your head. You are on God’s course! Your end is “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” Your disdainers are deceived and deliriously drifting on dangerous currents.

And please, do everything in your power to keep you children from drifting in the current of this world.

Love from Nancy
