Do not Reject Jesus #237

47  And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48  He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him— the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. (John 12:47-48)

Jesus came to save the world, not condemn it. Truth be told, the world was already condemned, hence the need for a Savior: “He who does not believe is condemned already” (John 3:16-18). People still reject Jesus by refusing His words. It is an inescapable truth that a person cannot receive Jesus while rejecting His words – the very words that will judge him at the end of time. Receive the words of Jesus and do His will. Do not call Him “Lord, Lord” while not doing what He says (Lk. 6:46). Rejecting Jesus puts you under the judgment of the very words you are refusing to believe and obey.
