Gospel Lk 21:20-28
Those who have rejected Jesus will pay a price. There really is no shorthand for doing so. How do we internalize this … do we reject Jesus knowingly, or do we just sometimes misunderstand Him? This passage speaks directly to the times we reject Him knowingly and those that do so. There are consequences, although we try and avoid describing a “fire and brimstone” vengeful God. Just as in the Old Testament the prophecy of Destruction is followed by Restoration for those that follow him.
Jesus then describes the path of redemption and love, through His mission, and invites us to join him in safety and comfort for all times.
