” if anyone hears what I am saying and doesn’t take It seriously, I DON’T REJECT HIM. I didn’t come to reject the world; I came to SAVE the world.
But you NEED to know that WHOEVER PUTS ME OFF, REFUSING TO TAKE IN WHAT I’M SAYING, is WILLFULLY CHOOSING REJECTION. The Word, the WORD-MADE-FLESH that I have spoken and that I am, that Word and no other is the LAST WORD.
I am not making all of this up on my own. The Father who sent me gave me orders, told me what I say and how to say it. And I know what His command produces: REAL AND ETERNAL LIFE. That’s all I have to say. What the Father told me, I tell you.”
~ John 12:47-50 (MSG)
