Second Chances will come to an end

This is a snippet from this coming Sunday’s sermon:

…His eyes like a flame of fire… – Revelation 1:14

The same eyes that John saw crying and caring all those years ago will one day be penetrating and ready to judge sin and all evil. Do you remember in the book of John chapter 8 when the people brought the woman caught in adultery? And they asked Jesus, what should we do? The law of Moses says that we stone her. And what did Jesus do? They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.

When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

Don’t miss the fact that that John relayed the story of the woman caught in adultery to us in the book named after him –The woman caught in adultery comes from John, chapter 8. In Revelation, John sees the same eyes that at one time looked away and forgave sin, no longer weeping.  One day those forgiving eyes will be like a flame of fire no longer giving second chances, but ready to judge the sin he was once willing to forgive.  One day it will be too late.  And all we can do is warn people…… before it’s too late.
