The Book of Hebrews warns God's people of the danger of drifting away from God's calling. Very few willfully and knowingly choose to reject God. Many run the risk of neglecting their calling to the point of slowly floating away. In working out their own salvation Christians face the challenges of time, familiarity with God's truth, the negative pulls of society and the struggle with carnal nature.
