1 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.

On account of the previous passages and the undeniable
truth that we have studied concerning the greatness of
Jesus Christ, being God, the Son, then, these great
truths concerning Jesus Christ should demand an
IMMEDIATE response from us. We ought to give more
earnest heed. In other words, it is necessary, it
behooves us, it is right and proper in the nature of
the case, previously presented concerning Christ, we
ought to be paying greater attention with our
thinking, giving ourselves over to the things of what
was said, concerning Jesus Christ, always being warned
of the danger of letting these great truths slip our
minds, or escape our thinking, or we let them pass us

I want to look briefly at how this word, heed, is used
in other passages and we will see by example some
characteristics of those who are giving the more
earnest heed.

Acts 8:5-6
5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and
preached Christ unto them.

6 And the people WITH ONE ACCORD GAVE HEED unto those
things which Philip SPAKE, hearing and seeing the
miracles which he did.

Acts 16:14-15
14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of
purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God,
HEARD [us]: whose heart the Lord opened, that she
ATTENDED (gave heed) unto the things which were spoken
of Paul.

15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she
besought [us], saying, If ye have judged me to be
faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide
[there]. And she constrained us.

1st Timothy 4:13-15
13 Till I come, GIVE ATTENDANCE to READING, to
EXHORTATION, to DOCTRINE. 14 Neglect not the gift that
is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the
laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
