What More Can He Say?

And the Lord hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.

Jeremiah 25:4

There is an old hymn titled “How Firm a Foundation.”  It has to be one of my all-time favorite hymns.  It contains a line that says “what more can He say, than to you He hath said?”  I like that song and I like that line and I think that this verse fits in with that thought.

What more can say than He has already said to us?

In this verse we find the Lord telling His people that He has sent prophets to them, but they have not listened to them.  He sent prophets to warn them about continuing on in their rejection of Him, but they didn’t want to listen.  They continued to ignore and reject Him.  What more could He have done for them?  He brought them out of Egypt.  He gave them the Promised Land.  He fought their battles and gave them food to eat.  Even when they strayed from Him, He did not immediately destroy them.  He sent prophets to warn them.  Still they rejected Him.  What more could He have done?

An even scarier question is what more could He have done for us?  He gave us His Son to die for our sins.  He gave us a complete Bible to tell us of this sacrifice.  He made a way for us to have forgiveness and life instead of guilt and death.  He has literally done everything that He could possibly have done for us.  Yet how many times have we still rejected Him?  That is a powerful question and one that we would do well to meditate upon:

What more could He have done?  And what have we done with what He did?

    • “Praying we’ll make the best of the time that’s left!” Amen to that. Like Paul said “forgetting those things which are behind, I press toward the mark…”
