John 12

John 12

“This is why they were unable to believe, because Isaiah also said: He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so that they would not see with their eyes or understand with their hearts and be converted” John 12:39

We live in a time where very few individuals are interested in the Gospel. We can speak to hundreds, if not thousands of people about God and we may be lucky to find  some that will even listen. In our society today, people are extremely busy going about their personal and professional business. These endeavors are noteworthy, but there is no eternal life found in the affairs of man. JB Nicholson once said that “ you can find anything and everything for the flesh. But there’s nothing for the soul.”  

The reality is we live in a world that loves the world. They are intrigued with power, prestige and whatever it maybe that compliments the ego. Because people love this fallen world, they have turned their backs to God. They have shut their minds and turned their backs to the eternal God. In return, God has “blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so that they would not see with their eyes or understand with their hearts and be converted.”

Everyone has a choice in life; love the world that lasts for a season; or love God that lasts for eternity.
