In the end, all that matters is what we do with Jesus (v.13-14) and how we respond to Him. Those who will be blessed in the new heaven and the new earth with be those who sought the Lord and listened to Him. Those who will be cursed will be those who rejected the Lord.
God is reaching out His hands to all people. He wants us to behold Him and to believe on HIm. But sadly so many rebel against the Lord just as Israel did. Their sin is doing their own thing, going after their own thoughts (v.1-2)
As we consider the future, the question for us today is, what have we done with Jesus? What are we doing with Jesus. Are we responding in faith and love to the Lord Jesus? Or are we going our own way?
