Unbelief Causes Backsliding.

Memory Verse

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God” (Hebrews 7: 13).

Text: Hebrews 3:7-13.

“Tomorrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel in the gate of Samaria,” Elisha announced. The lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, “Now, behold, if the Lord should make windows in heaven, might such a thing be? Elisha said, behold, thou shall see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof” (2kings 7: 19).The lord on whose hand the king leaned doubted the word of God, he died and never enjoyed the fulfilment of God’s word because of unbelief.
When you allow unbelief to crop up in your heart without check, it can lead you on the down ward road to backsliding. The children of Israel were barred from entering into the Promised Land due to their unbelief. Likewise, unbelief can hinder you from getting into heaven. To prevent backsliding in your spiritual life, you must take God at His word, trust Him with all your heart, and never doubt Him. You must abide in Christ and be spiritually alert.


Take God at His word


Unbelief can hinder you from getting into heaven.

Prayer for today
