The Danger of Drifting

“We lose heart in the things we do, if the things we do, do not come from the heart.” –Kenneth Kuykendall

What must be done for an individual to drift away from the Lord? What takes place in a Christian’s life that causes him to go backwards in his walk with God?  The answer…nothing.

As the ebb and flow of the tide takes a water bottle further and further out to sea, even so the believer in Christ can become distant from the Lord by doing absolutely nothing. Therefore, it is imperative that we be proactive in our spirituality.

The writer of Hebrews addressed this when he said, “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip” (Hebrews 2:1). Swimming against the tide takes discipline, diligence, and intentional effort.

Drifting is a slow process. What seems like small incremental moves can eventually lead to significant and dangerous distances. Doing nothing, saying nothing, being nothing, and attempting nothing may not seem like inherently evil acts of sin, but the reality is, such apathetic tendencies causes the strongest of swimmers to drift. Guard yourself from spiritual indifference! Persevere against the waves; refuse the melancholy pull of the world. Keep pressing until you reach the heavenly shoreline!
