The Chaplains Corner

The Chaplains Corner

Guest blogger, Chaplain Paul, is one of the most effective chaplains in America today. He is an emergency responder to every situation.

Hey, this is the Chaplain again.

Can you tell me the difference between Neglect and Reject? I guess the answer depends a lot on the context that you’re using those words in. But when it comes to the subject of your eternal salvation - there really isn’t any difference.

In God’s Word, the Bible, it says,
"How shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation?"
(Hebrews 2:3)
Many people will spend eternity away from God, not because they rejected what Jesus did on the cross, but because they simply neglected it. They put it off, they made excuses, they said, ‘I’ll do that later’ but never got around to it.

You can get away with postponing a lot of things, but not God. This "great salvation" is what Jesus did by loving you so much that He died to pay the death penalty for your sin. But that salvation isn't your salvation until you make a commitment of your life to Him, like a drowning person would grab a lifeguard as their only hope.

When did you do that with Jesus? If you never have, and you don't want to risk losing the heaven that Jesus died to give you, then you need to give yourself to Jesus today?

Don’t you think you’ve neglected Him long enough?
