What God says comes true. We recognize this as fact. Why is it, then, that so many people seem to hate what God says? I am referring, of course, largely to those who are of the world and do not know God. When we come to know God, we come to know that He can be trusted.
As Christians, we cannot hate what God says. Although we may not understand what He is doing at times, we have no reason to distrust Him or to despise His words. How are we any different from the world if we don't trust His words?
Some of the Israelites trusted God's word that He would send a Redeemer to bring salvation not only to the Jews, but to the Gentiles as well. God sent His message to prophets, who faithfully told the Israelites God's word. Some despised God's word, and killed the prophets.
Eventually, the Redeemer came to earth and the people hated Him as well. When they were done listening to Him, they crucified Him. It was the hatred for God and His word that crucified Jesus. However, despite the attempt to keep Him down, God's word still came true. Salvation was still uniquely provided through Jesus Christ.
We can all learn a lesson from this. We have no reason to resent or despise God or His word. In fact, we have every reason to trust His word. Let's not be like those who placed Jesus on the cross, but rather like the ones He came to after He was resurrected from the dead--willing to listen and doing our best to obey His word.
