Preached on Sunday the 7th of August, 2022.
We all understand the importance of truth for our lives. When we visit a doctor, we want a truthful and accurate diagnosis, no matter how confronting it may be. God's love is too great for him to flatter us and not teach us the truth. In this passage, the Lord Jesus speaks plainly about mankind's greatest danger, an everlasting fire on account of our sins before God. He calls on us all to give our highest attention to the escaping of this danger, for that is better for us than anything else. May the Lord use his word to awaken us all to this great danger, so that we may flee to Christ for safety and salvation.
