The person who is neglecting his salvation is not deliberately setting his mind to turn away from God or His way of life. He is simply, through neglect, allowing himself to drift in that direction. He does not plan to go that way. He gets distracted by things in his life—by hobbies, work, rearing children, and a great many other things. No matter what it is, he allows himself to neglect what has been given to him. It is necessary for us to seek recurrent nourishment from the Word of God, and it is available only through an enduring relationship with the Creator. This spiritual relationship, like any human relationship, is multifaceted. Yet, quite simply, we as individuals and as a body neglect our relationship with God, and the result is division and scattering. The world's spiritual junk food gradually becomes the source of our spiritual nourishment. It invades our attitudes and behaviors, systematically weakening us as it produces a spiritual disease. It deceives us because we outwardly appear to be in good health. We judge that we are spiritually rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing. However, the reality is a spiritual cancer is eroding your spiritual health, you have drifted. As time has shown, we were serving the self and the world rather than God. You must refrain from drifting and stay on course.
