Millions of slaves passed through the “Door of No Return” from an island off the coast of Senegal, in West Africa. After passing through that small door, they never saw their homeland again. It was, indeed, a door of no return. Jesus stressed the fatal consequences of those who reject Him as God’s Son. He came as God’s Agent to reveal God’s truth to the world. We read in John Chapter 12, that at the end of His public ministry, He shouted to the crowds, “If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me. For when you see me, you are seeing the one who sent me. I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark. I will not judge those who hear me but don’t obey me, for I have come to save the world and not to judge it. But all who reject me and my message will be judged on the day of judgment by the truth I have spoken. I don’t speak on my own authority. The Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it. And I know his commands lead to eternal life, so I say whatever the Father tells me to say.” Jesus spoke in plain words that each of us will one day be judged by the truth He spoke. So to ignore His words is equivalent to passing through a door of no return.
