"As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day. Jhn 12:46-48Jhn 12:46-48

For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building. 1Co 3:7-91Co 3:7-9 Servants should follow Jesus’ steps. Servants should not only plant, water but also follow up.

19 Conclusion "Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood.

20 Cont. "But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his sin; but you will have saved yourself. "Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block before him, he will die. Since you did not warn him, he will die for his sin. The righteous things he did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you do warn the righteous man not to sin and he does not sin, he will surely live because he took warning, and you will have saved yourself." Eze 3:17-21

21 For God [is] not unjust to forget your work and labour of love which you have shown toward His name, [in that] you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. Hbr 6:10
