The Danger of Drifting

The Danger of Drifting



We recognize that family worship has its unique challenges depending on your family’s size and stage of life. Therefore, we have prepared a complete worship service (below) for our entire church family because we are convinced that Sunday is so much more than a sermon. And this is one way for us to be worshiping the same way even though we are apart.

We suggest that you test the worship and sermon links before you gather your family. After you have done this, we encourage the leader of the house to read the prayers and appoint other readers as necessary to encourage greatest participation.

After the sermon is over, we encourage you to discuss the sermon and ways to live out its application.

TEXT: hebrews 1:1 – 2:4



As we come to worship today, we come ready to sing to the Lord for all that he is and has done…

Psalms 95:1    Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.


“All Creatures of Our God and King”



Romans 5:6  For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.


“How Deep the Father’s Love for Us”

“Nothing But the Blood”


Lord we trust not in our deeds, in our own righteousness, to make us right with you. We say with Paul, that we do not have “a righteousness of our own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith” (Philippians 3:9). Only your blood could make us right. Only your blood could cleanse our sins.

In the same way that your love overflowed on the cross, making its way toward sinners, would you now “cause our love to abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that we may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ” (Phil 1:9-10). As you have loved us, may we now begin to share that love with others.

As we turn now to hear your Word, we are asking for help….help to listen and take to heart what you are saying to us today….help to respond to it appropriately, applying it to our lives….help to see the splendor and majesty of Jesus in this passage. Your Word is precious and delightful. It is life giving and nourishing. It reveals the secrets of our hearts, exposing motives and intentions. It lights the path in front of us, showing which way is wisest. Come now during this time and speak to us.

The Danger of Drifting

Main Point: It is extremely important to not neglect our great salvation.

Review: From Chapter 1, we learn this about Jesus (Sermon preached on June 30, 2019)

  1. He is heir of all things (v2)
  2. He made the world (v2)
  3. He is the radiance of God’s glory (v3)
  4. He is the exact representation of God’s nature (v3)
  5. He upholds all things by the word of His power (v3)
  6. He made purification of sins (v3)
  7. He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high (v3)
  8. He is not an angel, he is much better (v4)
  9. He has inherited a more excellent name— Son (v4-5)
  10. He is to be worshiped (v6)
  11. He is declared to be God (v8)
  12. His throne is forever  (v8)
  13. His enemies will be made a footstool for his feet (v13)


  1. What is the overriding theme of Hebrews 1?
  2. In Hebrews 2:1 why are we told to pay much closer attention?
  3. How do you prepare to listen?
