Driven by Eternity DAY 12
“But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.”(Luke 12:45–46)
A believer may walk away from God, but that does not mean they will also walk away from the church. When this happens—and it does happen—it is a doubly dangerous situation, for now, there is a wolf disguised as a sheep among the flock, looking to benefit himself off those around him. (John Bevere)
Today the author takes us to the issues that take us away from God and they’re not that out of the ordinary. And yes, there are people who go to church but are not living as the church and I don’t even think they know what’s going on. But bitterness and unforgiveness are like cancer that eats away at our heart taking us away from heaven. Jesus had hard things to say about unforgiveness. We can’t live in the kingdom of God and live with an unforgiving heart. Hebrews 12:15 says, “See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled” Unforgiveness is dangerous, defiling and deadly.
