… Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion …
— Hebrews 3:7-8
I have invited countless people to come to faith in Jesus Christ and to participate in the great wedding feast of the Lamb, and they have made light of it. I cannot imagine it, but some do just that.
I talked to a 95-year-old man and invited him to the feast. He said no; he didn’t want to be bored. I tried to deal with that in an intelligent manner, but I really, upon reflection, think that what I should have said is, “What would ever make you say a stupid thing like that? Here you are teetering on the very edge of the precipice of eternity, about to plunge into the lake of fire, where you won’t have time to be bored because you will be howling and gnashing your teeth forever—and you talk about being bored in heaven!” When we witness to people we want to make it sound good and appealing. Remember, we are only the messenger. We cannot scare anyone into heaven, only invite them.
