The Danger of Negligence by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Tuesday Leadership Meeting. Pastor Kumuyi

We who are leaders should give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard.

Hebrews 4:1, 16.

You will face trials and temptations, and because those trials are there, let us come to the throne of grace to obtain mercy.

Hebrews 6:1

At the end of chapter 5, he was talking about the slow progress of the people. He expected them to be doing more for God.

Heb 10:23, 35. 36-39

We are not of them that draw back to perdition.

Heb 13:12-13.

We must observe Christ’s:


Hebrews 2:1 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.

We should not only glue our eyes and gaze on one thing and forget other things.

Profitable and Sustained Response to the Heavenly Message

The sermon is divided into three points:

  1. Our earnest devotion to the new message
  2. The eternal damnation of negligent men.
  3. The exclusive dominion of the neglected Messiah

    1. Our earnest devotion to the new message. Earnest heed.

We ought to. This is compulsory. 1 Thess. 4:1

Can you recollect what you have heard at the congress? Do you remember the ownership of God, and the priesthood and prophecies of Christ?
Do you remember about the name, nature, works, wonders, grace and gifts of the Holy Spirit?
We need to remember these, because if we do not remember what we have heard, we can slip.

We have to, we must remember.

Hebrews 2:1. We ought to.

Hebrews 1:!-2.

Remember the things you have heard when you are praying, teaching, and studying the scriptures.

Want to see God? Look at Jesus!

If Jesus is holding the whole world, don’t worry he will hold your family in Jesus name.

Hold on to the promises you have heard.

2  The eternal damnation of negligent men.

Hebrews 1:2-3

You may have the Bible and neglect it.
You may have salvation and neglect it, and not live by it.
You can have a birthright and neglect it.

Heb 2:3
The negligent person will not escape the eternal consequence of their negligence.

There are:
a. Negligent sinners. Hebrews 2:2; 1 Peter 4:17-18
b. Negligent saints Luke 17:28; Matthew 25:1
c. Negligent soul winners. Romans 10:13
d. Negligent shepherds (pastors) Matt 13:24, 30, 2 Peter 1:12
e. Negligent servants. 1 Kings 20:39-40, Luke 12:47
f. Negligent scorners Amos 6:1
g. Negligent sleepers. Jonah 1:1

Are you negligent? Are your family, colleagues saved?
As a leader, you are negligent when you delegate your responsibility every time.

For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth. 2 Peter 1:12

Don’t let good things take the best out of your hands.

Negligent scorners are always at ease, they don’t take anything serious. Woe unto them that are at ease in Zion. Amos 6:1. They are Never zealous about anything.

WE know we are nearer to the Lord than we were 10 years ago, yet there are people who are sleeping. It’s high time we awake from our sleep.

1 Thessalonians 5:3

There will no area of your life you will be negligent in Jesus name.

Timothy was negligent over his gifts – to teach, to pray, the gifts of the ministry over his life. Paul wanted him to stir up the gift of God in him. Everyone has a gift that will help him become successful. Do not be negligent about it in Jesus name.

Heb 2:5, 9.

3/ The Exclusive dominion of the neglected saviour.
John 3:35 – Ultimate authority and final dominion.
1 Corinthians 15:27 –
Philippians 2:9 – Our saviour is exalted.
1 Peter 3:22 – Christ is all in all. Everyone of us should submit to him

Heb 2:1 Let us give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. They will not slip from our hands in Jesus name.

Heb 4:15

All things are yours, remember what you have, take up all of them, and you will succeed in ministry in Jesus name. Whatever we have heard we will not hear in vain in Jesus name.

We will succeed in ministry in Jesus name.
