Everyone knows that a cork will float on top of the water. Even if it is pressed down beneath the surface—10, 50, or even 100 feet—it will pop back up to the surface again. However, I have read that once a cork descends to a depth of 200 feet, it cannot rise again because the pressure is too great.
The Bible says that it is possible to sink so deeply into sin that you cannot rise from its depths. The lower one descends into a life of disobedience to God, the more difficult it becomes to be saved. The longer a person lives in rebellion, the less chance there is for repentance to occur.
Hebrews 6:4-6 says, “It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.”
Let’s help lift someone up to Jesus, before it is too late!
