Scripture: Matthew 10:14-15
Matthew 10:14-15 says, “And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!” Are we willing to obey God even to the point of having to declare His judgment over those who refuse to hear? One of the marks of strength in Scripture is that we are willing to be a representative for God who will not only tell people about the Kingdom but also tell them the consequences for rejecting it! That is not easy to do. It often guarantees frustration, criticism and perhaps persecution. Are we willing to take the criticism for doing what God tells us to do? That is the mark of a person who is strong.
