A tough topic among Christians nowadays is what it really means to be unforgiven. We often don’t think about those who are unforgiven by God, but it can happen. Those who disbelieve the Holy Spirit, for example. We also are under judgment when we do not forgive, as the Lord forgave us. It’s a sobering thought and we should not dismiss it.
Questions for further thought:
1. What does God’s judgment – actual judgment – look like?
2. Do you think that God wishes judgment for any of His children? Why, then, did He threaten it?
Challenge: Help us to remember that the Lord does, in fact, put those who do not forgive under actual judgment. We are to forgive others just as He forgave us, and He committed no sins against anyone, ever. Pray that we remember this portion of the Bible also.
