Sermons about Israel
From God’s perspective, accountability is a fact of life, if not in this life, then in the next. We can be assured that, in some sense, we will be held accountable for our choices. In Luke 20:9-19, Jesus declared that Israel would be held accountable by God for their persistent sins, rejection of the prophets, and imminent killing of the Son, Jesus Himself. Jesus' teaching illustrates the broader principle that God holds people accountable. For, God has been good to us. Yet, we persist in sin, rejecting God’s warnings. God even sent His own Son to redeem us. Finally, as in Jesus' day, so now, judgment awaits those who reject the Son. So, live wisely as one who will give an account. Receive the Son. Produce fruit.
