Great Salvation (Part 1)

Beth Jones

"How shall we escape [appropriate retribution] if we neglect and refuse to pay attention to such a great salvation [as is now offered to us, letting it drift past us forever]?" Hebrews 2:3, AMP

Have you considered the greatness of your "great salvation" lately?

A lot of us haven't. And because we often think God is mad at us, when we read this passage in Hebrews we might view it in a negative light at first glance. We think that we better pay attention to our great salvation, because if we don’t – God’s gonna get us! Is that what this passage is telling us or, are we missing something?

After all, God is love. He’s a good God. He’s not a schizophrenic Father who blesses and hurts His own children at the same time. He’s not a God who uses fear to motivate us. No, He’s a good Father who gives us His Word and inspires His children to have faith in Him as the loving Father He is. When we choose to believe Him, we experience His grace and goodness. When we neglect His Word, we experience difficulties He never intended for us to experience.

In the Old Testament, the children of Israel didn’t experience judgment, punishment or retribution as random events from an “unpredictable” God. They experienced exactly what the Lord told them would happen if they neglected His commands. When they went their own way and neglected God’s instructions – they suffered. Clearly, it wasn’t the Lord’s will that they suffer – but when they didn’t believe His Word, when they drifted and went their own way – they faced the consequences of their neglect.

I wonder if the Holy Spirit, through the writer of Hebrews, is trying to encourage us to not be like the Old Testament believers who doubted and neglected God and His Word, but rather – we are encouraged to believe God, His Word and the great salvation He’s purchased for us! Because of the price Jesus paid for us to experience this great salvation, the Lord wants us to believe and give it the attention it deserves. When we do – we will experience the greatness of our salvation!

So, how great is our salvation? We’ll pick up this thought in tomorrow’s Daily Devo...

Say This: "Father, I thank You for Your great salvation! You are such a good God – I will not neglect or drift from You or Your Word. Today, I receive the gift of this great salvation. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."
