Soon I will celebrate my 37th year as a Believer in Christ. But this verse has just as much importance to me as it has on any brand-new Christian. For we all must pay attention to what we’re hearing. We need to be on guard of people who twist the Word ever so slightly as not to cause immediate negative response from those listening, but just indifference. For the longtime Believer it’s called apathy…and for the new Believer it’s their lack of knowledge of the Bible…but either way, it’s both our responsibility to pay attention, apply ourselves, and not be swayed. We both need to be actively searching the Scriptures for God’s Truth when we hear something that doesn’t seem to be right.
