I want to enlarge a little upon what we read in verses 23-31. Here we have recorded a conversation between the rich man and Abraham.
The wonderful knowledge beyond the grave. He recognises Abraham though he could never have met him! (Matt 17:4).
He asks for mercy. Verse 24. How sad it is to feel a need of mercy when it cannot be had and all the time it could have been enjoyed, it was ignored and rejected!
Please read Proverbs 1:24-31.
How clearly will the lost sinner see and feel the difference between himself and the redeemed. “And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom,” verse 23. He is afar off amongst the redeemed.
Sinners often take great pains to get far away from Christians. How different will be their thinking in eternity.
