When a defendant is faced with a damning indictment, a legal advocate is obtained in the hopes that he might obtain mercy through a plea bargain with the prosecuting attorney.
Nobody wants to walk in to work and get hit with a subpoena. Nobody likes to get served divorce papers in front of the kids. Nobody wants to have handcuffs slapped on them in front of all their friends.
And nobody, NOBODY wants to be informed that divine judgment awaits them, especially when its “party time.”
You see, handcuffs and lawsuits cannot be wished away. Yet people wish away their sins everyday. They reject and ignore God as if God doesn’t exist. That is the essence of sin – that we reject God and his rules and put ourselves the place only God belongs.
Did you ever stop and think about how much you hate being ignored? The more you try to get attention, the more you realize the situation is hopeless. God is crying out to all people everywhere to come back and get right with him through repentance and faith in his son Jesus Christ. If you keep ignoring God, the day will come when God ignores you.
You see, being ignored by God is the very essence of hell. Having no significance, not to anybody. As if you never existed. No heritage. No history. No family. No friends. Hell is eternal torment- weeping and gnashing of teeth. No individuality. All that is left is the sin and the shame.
PLEASE DON’T DO THIS TO YOURSELF. Come and get right with Jesus.
Jesus will be your advocate, stand in the gap for you. Repenting from sinful attitudes of ignoring God and believing what God says about himself, your life will be spared. You can be saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone; any other way and the indictment stands.
