When a Duxbury, Massachusetts, man refused to pay one-cent postage due on a letter, it was returned to the Plymouth dead-letter office.
Postmaster Wm. Goodwin disclosed that when the letter was opened, it contained a $450 check. It will be returned to the sender in Boston.
Kindly reserve your criticism of the man who refused to pay one cent for a check-laden letter until you have answered this question: "Have I received the message on which nothing is due and which offers me that which money cannot buy and works cannot secure: Eternal Life?"
Here is the message: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
Is that priceless message but a dead letter to you, to be sent back to the sender, the Lord Jesus Christ?
“When a person refuses to come to Christ it is never just because of lack of evidence or because of intellectual difficulties: at root, he refuses to come because he willingly ignores and rejects the drawing of God's Spirit on his heart.” - William Lane Craig.
Heb 12:25 (NLT): “Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One who is speaking. For if the people of Israel did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger, we will certainly not escape if we reject the One who speaks to us from heaven!”
