V. The hour of decision (34-50)
     A. Unbelief
          1. The prediction of Scripture
          2. The pronouncement of the Savior (John 3:16-20, 36)

Next Steps:
     > Honestly examine your heart --> Do you have a "lost" love? John 6:2 then to 60 -- followed him until they thought it too hard. We are twice His- he made us and he bought us.
     > Honestly evaluate your life --> There is one option!
