Day 18 of Prayer & Fasting
Matthew 11:20-23 (ESV)
20 Then he began to denounce the cities where most of his mighty works had been done, because they did not repent. 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for Tyre and Sidon than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You will be brought down to Hades. For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
Today is plain and simple. Notice that everyone in these cities never repented because they first rejected what Jesus was doing and who He said He was. This is the ONE sin that God cannot forgive.
Do you accept that there IS a God? That’s a good start but that is not good enough. To believe that God exists then must compel you to know this God and what He asks of us. All Jesus asks of us is to believe He is the Son of God who rose from the grave after paying the price for our sins on the cross. You cannot make it any simpler than that.
If you accept that there is a God, and that Jesus is God, you must do one thing. Make Him Lord. God cannot just be your God. He MUST be your LORD. Pray to Him and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal if you believe in God but live your life like if He doesn’t exist. If so, surrender to the Lord and He will do a MIGHTIER work in you than Jesus was doing in these un-repented cities.
