Whoever rejects me and does not accept my words has something to judge him: the word that I spoke, it will condemn him on the last day, because I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and speak. And I know that his commandment is eternal life. So what I say, I say as the Father told me.'
Jesus pleads with us to believe in Him! He so desires us to understand what He is telling us. And what He says, he qualifies, is not just His own words, but the words of God the Father who sent Him to speak to us, on earth, in these words we now have in holy Scripture. If we do reject what Jesus is asking us, explaining to us--if we do not observe and do as He asks, Jesus does not condemn us. No, but His very words that we rejected and did not observe, obey, will be our own condemnation!
