The point is this, people that have lived since the Holy Spirit was sent to call us, lead us and comfort us, have more reasons to believe than most of those people back then. We can look back over history and see more of God’s promises fulfilled than they could and yet, there are many that still refuse to believe. We will hear the story multiple more times than most of them heard it, but not all will believe Every person will hear the story and have the opportunity to receive Jesus as their Savior, yet not all will do so. As time goes by, hearts grow harder and harder. A few years ago, it was reported that we had to hear the story seven times before we accepted Jesus. Now, that number is reported to have risen to fourteen. Our work is to keep telling the story and we must keep telling it more and more, so those around us will have more opportunities. But the results of our telling the story are in God’s hands. Our work is to tell, His work is to confirm it in the hearts of those He has chosen.
