Bible: Hebrews 12:14-17

Do Not Reject God’s Warning

12:14 Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness, 1  for without it no one will see the Lord. 12:15 See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God, that no one be like a bitter root springing up 2  and causing trouble, and through him many become defiled. 12:16 And see to it that no one becomes 3  an immoral or godless person like Esau, who sold his own birthright for a single meal. 4  12:17 For you know that 5  later when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no opportunity for repentance, although he sought the blessing 6  with tears.
