I don’t care!

Re: Verse reading–Hebrews 1:1-6,14; 2:1-4 (day one–New Study!)
Did you ever see the old movie “The Fugitive”?  Harrison Ford shouts, “I didn’t kill my wife!”  Tommy Lee Jones says, “I don’t care!”  The writer of Hebrews imagines a similar conversation going on between men and God.  “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?” (v 2:3)  The word for neglect is ameleo.  Melo meant “to care, to be concerned.”  A/meleo meant “not to care”.  Most people don’t set out to deny God.  They usually have no conscious intent to offend His law or challenge His authority.  They just neglect the opportunities.  They just ignore the voice/call of God.  They keep their distance from God.  Dangerous mistake!  To whom much is given, much is required.  The GREAT salvation offered in Jesus Christ puts all of us under heavy responsibility and great danger.  How will we escape judgement if our answer to His amazing love is,  “I don’t care!”

  1. Am so thankful that Brad has introduced this website to me. I’ve shared it with my Sunday School class also. Every third week when I teach, I hardly look at other commentaries because the words expressed in these Everyday Prayers are powerful enough, along with the Scripture, to challenge all of us. What a way to start today. Neglecting? Not caring? Sad, but true, too many times. Thank you for your study and teaching for the rest of us!
