So Great Salvation

Hebrews 2:1-3

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

We must prove ourselves!

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Abiding In Christ (fifth evidence)

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
