Hebrews poses a simple question

'How shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation'

Exactly. If we ignore what bible teaches us, what God has given us, what Jesus is willing to do for us, if we ignore the glorious face of Jesus Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit, the gift of His all satisfying presence, His glory in conquering death. If we neglect these things, and drift, or wilfully turn our backs...what hope is there? There is no hope for a sinner like my away from the cross of Jesus Christ. His light must blind my eyes to the world, or i am nothing. I am dust.

John Piper describes the Holy Spirit as the presence and power of Jesus Christ. The presence and power of Jesus Christ. How can the world distract us? How can sin conquer us? It must not, it shall not.

Christ in you, the hope of glory.
