DAILY READINGS: 2 Chron. 5:1-6:11; Ezekiel 29:1-30:19; John 11:1-27

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

One of the foundation stones of the gospel is that “The Lord is… not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3:9). But the Lord also takes it very seriously if someone consistently, deliberately chooses to reject His mercy. The solemn warning is that there is a judicial blindness that follows the one who continuously rejects the gospel and chooses their unrighteousness.
One more rejection may indeed be the last one! —Sid Halsband

Have you counted the cost, if your soul should be lost
Tho’ you gain the whole world for your own? —A. J. Hodge
