Jesus began to reproach the towns where most of his mighty deeds had been done, since they had not repented. “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes. But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. And as for you, Capernaum:
Will you be exalted to heaven? You will go down to the netherworld.
For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”
The towns that had seen the wonders that Jesus did refused to repent and live as He taught them. He condemned them for their unbelief. What do you think Jesus would have to say to us today? We know what He can do and has done, yet so many refuse to believe. Do you believe? Do you live your life as Jesus taught us or as today’s world teaches? Your decision is the difference between heaven and the netherworld. Yes, hell is real and you can send yourself there. Choose wisely.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I chose an eternity in heaven with you. May I never be misled by the world, may I always give you praise, honor and glory, Amen!
Turn to the Lord in your need, and you will live.
