Awful Sin of Rejecting Christ

Was reading a sermon from John Flavel's Fountain of Life, and was struck by what he said:
"If the greatest love has been manifested in giving Christ to the world, then it follows, that the greatest evil and wickedness is manifested in despising, slighting, and rejecting Christ. Blush, O heavens, and be astonished, O earth; yea, be horribly afraid! No guilt like this." (Flavel, works Volume 1, pg. 70)

Its easy for me to say, "Well, I don't reject Christ, I mean I read His Word, I read books about Christ, I attend a church that proclaims Christ."  But, would I be willing to die for Christ? Is Christ my all in all? Is Christ my only treasure? Good time for self-examination.
