Scary Thought, That

For God so loved the world”, is a line Jesus himself spoke and preambles the statement that because of that love God offered his only son to give us eternal life (John’s gospel 3:16).

Jesus also said with that, “… whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6)

Wow! Better to die in the cold, crushing, black depths of the sea than to face Jesus having led one of his children astray? That’s what He says. Is it any wonder? Consider the agony He endured to save them. Think of what it must be like for Jesus to save them, and then lose them to someone who twisted His word into a lie.

Every day there is news of some who say they are Christians, but embrace, endorse and encourage behaviors that God has clearly warned us about. Please don’t be a part of that.

The depths of the sea inspire fear; but the one who created them is much more to be feared if you hurt his family.
