The Danger of Drifting Away - Kirk Wellum


A good exhortation from Kirk Wellum:

"With all that is taking place around us in the world, it is possible to lose sight of what matters; things like where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going. We can become entangled in the concerns of the moment, wrapped up in the news headlines and forget that the real story is most often not what is reported on television or in newspaper, nor is it the latest scuttlebutt of the financial and business community, the technology sector, or even the blog world. What really matters is our relationship with the exalted Lord of creation and redemption. Do we know the one who has sat down at the Father's right hand? Have we been redeemed by him? Are we living in what is called in Hebrews (and elsewhere) the "last days" as those who understand that this is more of a theological than a chronological designation. The "last days" are here, because no matter how long they go on, God has spoken definitively in his Son. If we know these truths they will keep us from "drifting away" and as we apply them to our lives they will insure that we live so as to make every moment count for eternity."
