Do Not Ignore God

“Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.”

Luke 19:41-42

Ponder This

In Luke 19, Jesus wept on the Mount of Olives. Do you know why Jesus wept? Luke 19:41-42 says, “Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, ‘If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.’” No wonder Jesus wept. The prophet Daniel gave the precise day. Jesus said, “If you'd only known the things that belong to you on this your day.” The Israelites had been given a very specific warning, but they refused to see it. We must be careful that we also don’t miss the warnings of God that we have received. God has been gracious to reveal Himself to us; we must be careful not to ignore Him.

  • What are some warnings God has given us in the Bible?
  • What will the consequences be if we don’t heed these warnings?

Practice This

Ask God to show you ways you might have ignored His Word. Ask Him to give you a repentant and obedient heart to move forward in a way that honors Him.
