Receive: A Poem

“Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the Gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. For we who have believed do enter that rest…There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His” (Hebrews 4:1-3; Hebrews 4:9).

“There is a rest open to you today. God offers rest. The door is not shut. The time is not past. You have not missed your last opportunity. The door is open. The time is now” (John Piper–desiringgod.org).

“Mercy triumphs over judgement, but refusing mercy is disastrous, inviting judgement. God’s judgement for sin is never unjust. His judgement is always the result of mercy that was offered and refused. The Lord is patient and never wants us to perish. He wants us to repent, but those who refuse mercy will receive judgement” (christianity.com).
