There is such a thing as spiritual suicide, and some folks commit it. Today’s devotional will explain. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
John 5:40John 5:40 ESV 40
yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.
“I was preaching once, in a certain city, and a gentleman who had been very kind to me was in the congregation, but I saw him get up in the middle of the sermon, and go out of the building. The brother who was with me slipped out after him, and said to him, ‘My dear sir, why did you come out?’ He answered, ‘Mr. Spurgeon has got me into his hands; I am like an india-rubber doll, and he can twist me into any shape that he likes. I am afraid that, if I had listened to him for another ten minutes, I should have been converted.’ So off he went, deliberately stamping out, as far as he could, the spark of truth as it came toward him. He would not let the good seed grow; he invited the birds of the air to come and steal it away. Do not forget that, although the Lord graciously changes man’s will, and he has absolute power over the human will, and makes men willing in the day of his power, yet he never saves anybody against his will, and, while the will stands out against God, and is unrenewed and unchanged, the man is still unsaved. It does seem to me a dreadful thing that people can come to the house of God without any desire to get a blessing, and there cover themselves up in armor of mail to keep every arrow from getting anywhere near their hearts.”
