How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? (Hebrews 2:3)
Is there a sense of greatness in your mind about your salvation? Or do you neglect it?
Do you respond to the greatness of your salvation? Or do you treat it the way you treat your will or the title to your car or the deed on your house? You signed it once and it is in a file drawer somewhere, but it is not a really great thing. It has no daily effect on you. Basically you neglect it.
Only what is it really — this great salvation? What he’s really saying is:
*Don’t neglect being loved by God.
*Don’t neglect being forgiven and accepted and protected and strengthened and guided by Almighty God.
*Don’t neglect the sacrifice of Christ’s life on the cross.
*Don’t neglect the free gift of righteousness imputed by faith.
