Our greatest danger is...

The greatest danger we face is just ignoring God. "How shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation?" "How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?" Hebrews 2:3, NIV; Hebrews 2:3, KJV.  More people will be eternally lost from neglecting God, from ignoring God, then from all other reasons combined! Your greatest danger will be that of neglecting to read God's word with a spiritual hunger every day. Your greatest danger will be in neglecting to pray constantly throughout each day.

I challenge you to become a spiritual giant using these two avenues of strength. To avoid becoming spiritually fat and lazy, there is a third part to spiritual health. Reading God's word compares to eating food. You eat two or three times a day. A good program is read God's Word as often as you eat food. Prayer is compared to breathing fresh air. Talk with God in your thoughts all through the day, just like breathing. 

Exercise is important to good physical health and it is important to good spiritual health. This is the third part of the good spiritual health triangle. Tell others about the great things you are learning. Help them find good spiritual health as well. Sharing these things with others is "exercising your faith" and just as physical exercise helps make you strong sharing the Word of God will help make you spiritually strong. Those who are ultimately lost will be lost from neglecting these three sources of power. May God guide you to strong spiritual health.
