Selwyn makes a good point when he says ‘that by their actions or indifference, people can hurt Him, just as He was hurt on Calvary.’
I don’t entirely agree with Selwyn in his application of the verses (especially verse 6)Â set for Reading and Meditation – these verses in Hebrews, Chapter 6:1-12, are referring to a particular group of people not the general population; from verse 4 to verse 6, we read: “It is impossible for those who once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the Word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting Him to public disgrace.”
Yet, I’m sure that Selwyn is correct when he Â says: ‘How it must hurt Him to look out on a world that is indifferent to His love.’ His extreme pain is for all those who will experience eternity separated from His love. Do you agree?
The second, good point Selwyn makes today is: ” … whenever we move out in loving service to others whenever we minister to the poor, whenever we do anything to relieve the hurt and suffering of those in pain, we areÂ doing it unto Him. …”
It’s an amazing thing – is it not – that when we give a glass of water to someone whoÂ needs itÂ – we areÂ satisfying the thirst of our God – Jesus?
