A renewed sense of urgency came over me as I took in Jesus' words about those who will not spend eternity with God. Verse 25 spoke loudly to me. "When the master of the house has locked the door, it will be too late." This lets us know that at some point the opportunity to receive Christ will no longer be available. Verse 28 was also powerful. "There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, for you will see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God, but you will be thrown out."
