Many don’t become Christians because they are unwilling to submit to God and to obey His commands. They think that there will be no consequences for this from a God Who is infinitely loving.
In this message, we see that these people are tragically wrong. Jesus Himself tells us in this passage that those who reject Him and hate Him will be destroyed by Him on the Day of Judgment.
In the light of this bad news, we are all urged to submit to God while we may, to turn from our sins and trust Jesus to save us.
