What happens when one sits under the truth of God’s Word week in and week out and does nothing about that which God is instructing him? Margaret Chan, the director of the World Health Organisation stood up in a conference in 2014 and warned that life as we know it may be about to come to an end. What was the context in which she spoke these words? She was responding to the increasing resistance of bacteria to antibiotics. She said that in the last 25 years, bacteria have become increasingly immune to the antibiotics in our medical arsenal due to an overexposure to antibiotics through doctors prescribing them too freely. So it is when we fail to appropriate to our lives the truth of God’s Word, we build up an immunity to truth and our hearts grow hard!! In response to the medical problem, Margaret Chan said that the cupboard is nearly bear!! For the Christian unmoved by truth, I simply ask, what more can be said?
This sermon is a warning against resisting the truth of God. When the Lord is convicting our hearts to turn from sin and is persistent in calling us to such; if we repent not when God has done all to effect that repentance, what more can be done? When everything has been said and done, what then? The Lord reserved some of His most scathing words to such people, may we be not found as them!!
