Take Heed Lest You Fall
By David Bragg

    In May of 2017 a 67-year-old woman in Plainfield, NJ was caught on surveillance video walking down the street focusing on a cell phone. Her walk turns tragic as she bumps into, and then falls over, an open basement access door. She was ultimately lifted from the basement with serious injuries (mcall.com).
    As we walk through this world our focus must be on Christ and His Word because otherwise, we are in danger of falling spiritually. The inspired warnings echo from our Bibles.

  • 1 Cor. 9:27 - lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
  • Galatians 5:4 - who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.
  • 1 Timothy 4:1 - Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith
  • Hebrews 3:12 - Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God
    Knowing that we CAN fall away is a vital realization in making sure that we DON’T fall away.
