condemned cities



Luke 10:13-16

Luk 10:13 “Tragedy has come to you, Chorazin! Tragedy has come to you, Bethsaida! Because if the miracles done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago; They would have sat in sackcloth and ashes.
Luk 10:14 But it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgement than for you!
Luk 10:15 And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to the sky? No, you will be thrown down to Hades!
Luk 10:16 “The one who listens to you listens to me, and the one who rejects you rejects me, and the one who rejects me rejects the one who sent me.”

condemned cities

Jesus condemned these ancient cities because they were proud of their heritage, but they treated the representatives of his kingdom with indifference. The real measure of the greatness of a city or nation or family, or person is willingness to listen to the word of God coming from his messengers.

Lord, may we never be so blinded by our past that we refuse to listen to your word in the present.
