The Light Daily Devotional – Who is an Unbeliever?
Focus: Who is an Unbeliever?
WORD FOR TODAY
Unbelievers are those who disbelieve the existence of God and live contrary to His word. They know the will of God and do otherwise!
“Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God.” Hebrews 3:12 NLT
What makes a man an unbeliever is an unbelief. Unbelief does not manifest predominantly in words alone but also in action. Jesus referred to the words of Prophet Isaiah describing hypocrites: “These people honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.” (Matt.15.8 NIV). One of those things common with unbelievers is that their hearts are far from God.
You can be a Pastor, General Overseer or leader in the church and still be an unbeliever. Unbelievers don’t believe in the will of God but place much priority on using common sense. They don’t believe in the second coming of Christ. They make light of the fact that the wages of sin is death (Rom 6:23) and that the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
There is no doubt about the fact that a man exhibits unbelief if he continues to live in sin despite knowing God is not pleased with it. Believing in God’s word and living accordingly is what makes you a believer.
+ Are you a believer?
Prayer: Lord! Make me an example of a believer in all aspects of life in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: A man is an unbeliever whenever he disbelieves God’s Word nor acts contrary to it!
Have a Delightful Thursday!
