Matthew 11:20-24

20 Jesus began to speak against the cities where he had done most of his miracles. The people there had not turned away from their sins. So he said, 21 “How terrible it will be for you, Korazin! How terrible for you, Bethsaida! Suppose the miracles done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon. They would have turned away from their sins long ago. They would have put on black clothes. They would have sat down in ashes. 22 But I tell you this. On judgment day it will be easier for Tyre and Sidon than for you. 23 “And what about you, Capernaum? Will you be lifted up to heaven? No! You will go down to the place of the dead. Suppose the miracles done in you had been done in Sodom. It would still be here today. 24 But I tell you this. On judgment day it will be easier for Sodom than for you.”

What an indictment, God’s wrath. Their Hardness of heart, Indifference, refusal to change and repent. Their attitude toward God was unforgivable.

We must be very careful in our attitude when God does some things never seen before. God is God and He can do anything, we must believe He has a purpose in all. These towns saw many miracles and still were unmoved. Signs, wonders and miracles are to bring us closer to God. To Glorify and worship His Magnificence.

Lord may we be ready to experience all you have planned for our eyes and lives. Ready to let these times bring us closer to You. Amen

    This is a great piece of wisdom and catches out many Christians. It has to be the quote of the day!
