Focus Verse of the Week

It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (Hebrews 10:31)

Classic Commentary

It is good to fall into the hands of God, as David did, when one does so with filial faith in his father's love, though God chastises him. "It is fearful" to fall into His hands as a reprobate and presumptuous sinner doomed to His just vengeance as Judge (Hebrews 10:27).

(Adapted from commentary critical and explanatory on the whole bible)

A Thought to Keep

We cannot escape God - but whether we fall on mercy or judgment depends on our response to Him.
