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.
For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking. It has been testified somewhere,
“What is man, that you are mindful of him,
or the son of man, that you care for him?
You made him for a little while lower than the angels;
you have crowned him with glory and honor,
putting everything in subjection under his feet.”
Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

Are you a drifter? Do you go your own way, drifting through life as you desire and only turning to God as a last resort when things get tough and you are in need? I do not like to admit it, but I tend to drift more than I would like to. While the eternal salvation God offers is a one-time thing, we should not neglect the gift or drift away from its power as we walk through our days. If we, like Jesus, put everything in subjection to God, we will live out our salvation and receive grace and power to endure the days on earth until we can spend eternity with Him.'
