There was an old homeless man sleeping on a park bench downtown. He got up from the bench that he was laying on to cross the street to the other side. While the man was away, a bag of fresh bagels was placed where he was sleeping on. A gift was placed by a stranger who wanted the old man to have a meal and at the same time, give God all the glory by thanking Him. When he came back and saw the bag of bagels, his eyes widened and paused for a few seconds with thoughts running through his mind. Surprisingly, the man picked it up and walked directly to the dumpster and tossed the wonderful gift in the trash.
This is what Jesus faces every day by Atheists, Agnostics, false religion and those who do not associate with a name tag do when Jesus knocks at the door of their hearts to hand them the gift of eternal life (the message of Christ). They grab the message which is the Good News, walk to the nearest dumpster and toss it. If only they truly knew the consequences of their action.
36 The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who refuses to believe in the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him.
29 How much worse punishment do you think one will deserve who has trampled on the Son of God, regarded as profane the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know the One who has said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, and again, The Lord will judge His people. 31 It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God!
