God Has No Other Way

If Christians do not accept the ways of God to remain faithful to Him, He has no other form of enticement to keep them. That is why the Hebrew writer said, “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame” (Hebrews 6:4-6).
If a Christian had been enlightened, tasted the heavenly gift, partaken of the Holy Spirit, tasted the word of God, tasted the powers of the age to come, but still fell away, what else could God possibly do to persuade that Christian to stay with Him. Such a Christian has set his heart to go away from God and nothing will bring that Christian back, except for the turning of his own heart.
The apostate Christian has symbolically crucified Jesus again, putting Him to open shame.
Please, dear Christian, do not ever fall away, for you see the great damage that it does.
