A Warning against Drifting Away

2So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it.G1223G5124G2248G1163G4056G4337G191G3379G3901 2For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished.G1063G1487G3056G2980G1223G32G1096G949G2532G3956G3847G2532G3876G2983G1738G3405 3So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak?G4459G2249G1628G272G5082G4991G3748G746G2983G2980G1223G2962G950G1519G2248G5259G191 4And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.G2316G4901G5037G4592G2532G5059G2532G4164G1411G2532G3311G40G4151G2596G846G2308

Jesus, the Man

5And furthermore, it is not angels who will control the future world we are talking about.G1063G32G5293G3756G5293G3625G3195G4012G3739G2980 6For in one place the Scriptures say, "What are mere mortals that you should think about them, or a son of man that you should care for him?G1161G5100G4225G1263G3004G5101G2076G444G3754G3403G846G2228G5207G444G3754G1980G846 7Yet you made them only a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.G1642G846G1024G5100G1642G3844G32G4737G846G1391G2532G5092G2532G2525G846G1909G2041G4675G5495 8You gave them authority over all things." Now when it says "all things," it means nothing is left out. But we have not yet seen all things put under their authority.G5293G3956G5293G5270G846G4228G1063G1722G5293G3956G5293G846G863G3762G506G846G1161G3568G3708G3768G3956G5293G846 9What we do see is Jesus, who was given a position "a little lower than the angels"; and because he suffered death for us, he is now "crowned with glory and honor." Yes, by God's grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone.G1161G991G2424G3588G1642G1024G5100G1642G3844G32G1223G3804G2288G4737G1391G2532G5092G3704G1089G5485G2316G1089G2288G5228G3956 10God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation.G1063G4241G846G1223G3739G3956G2532G1223G3739G3956G71G4183G5207G1519G1391G5048G747G846G4991G5048G1223G3804 11So now Jesus and the ones he makes holy have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters.G1063G5037G37G2532G37G3956G1537G1520G1223G3739G156G1870G3756G1870G2564G846G80 12For he said to God, "I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters. I will praise you among your assembled people."G3004G518G4675G3686G3450G80G1722G3319G1577G5214G4571 13He also said, "I will put my trust in him," that is, "I and the children God has given me."G2532G3825G1473G2071G3982G1909G846G2532G3825G2400G1473G2532G3813G3739G2316G1325G3427 14Because God's children are human beings - made of flesh and blood - the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death.G1893G3767G3813G2841G4561G2532G129G3348G2532G846G3898G3348G846G2443G1223G2288G2673G2192G2904G2288G5123G1228 15Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.G2532G525G5128G3745G1223G5401G2288G2258G3956G2198G1777G1397 16We also know that the Son did not come to help angels; he came to help the descendants of Abraham.G1063G1222G1949G3756G1949G32G235G1949G4690G11 17Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people.G3606G2596G3956G3784G3666G80G2443G1096G1655G2532G4103G749G4314G2316G1519G2433G266G2992 18Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.G1063G1722G3739G3958G846G3958G3985G1410G997G3985
