Many people unknowingly live in constant jeopardy of something far worse – a Christless eternity in hell. Failing to recognize the consequences of unbelief, they risk sealing their doom at any moment. We cannot exaggerate the danger of rejecting Christ and living in unbelief, for what we do with Him and His offer of salvation determines where we will spend eternity.
The words of our text are among the most chilling found in the Bible. They emphasize the truth of Hebrews 10:31: that it is “a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Our Lord describes hell as a terrible place of outer darkness (Matthew 22:13) and eternal hopelessness (Matthew 18:8-9). – Henry G. Bosch
When it comes to salvation, he who hesitates may be lost!
