Hebrews 6:7-8 Be Diligent About Eternity

Hebrews 6:7-8 (KJV)
For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:
But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

The passage is obviously not concerned with herbs and thorns but issues of eternal consequence. We ought not take this too lightly.

The earth, all the earth, is often refreshed with rain. Due to that rain, plants of all sorts are nourished and grow.
  • Some of this plants are useful and are a blessing
  • Others are not useful and can inhibit the useful
 That they receive rain is not an indicator of God's blessing and is no promise of eternal peace.
  • That which is good receives the rain and is blessed of God.
  • That which is not good also receives the rain but it is eventually gathered and burned.
I have met people who believe they have a good relationship with God because some good has happened for them. Some would say these blessings from God happen for them often. But these are people who deny the message of salvation through Christ. They are, as it were, soaking up the rain right now but their end is eternal judgment

I have met others who have no relationship with God at all. They claim He does not exist. They boast of having:
  • No fear of death
  • Peace of mind and
  • As good or better life as any Christian they know
Once again they are only enjoying what the whole earth enjoys. It provides no evidence that their assumptions about spiritual things are true. The Bible is clear that their eternal days will be in torments in the lake of fire and brimstone.

Wisdom demands that every person give diligence to the matter of eternity.
