How to avoid drifting.

We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. – Hebrews 2:1 NIV 

Matthew 4:4 The Message

4 Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: “It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God’s mouth.”

Luke 5:16 The Passion Translation

16 But Jesus often slipped away from them and went into the wilderness to pray.

Romans 15:4

A steady stream of God’s Word can prevent you from drifting downstream.
