Cause and Consequence of Unyielding Unbelief – Matthew 11:20-24

Posted on 29 May 2016, Pastor: Nathaniel Pringle

 

Cause – Unrepentant heart

Consequence – Judgment

God will judge each person according to the light available to him. This does not mean that those who had little light will carry no guilt – all will be judged. But, it does mean that those who had greater light and opportunity to understand the truth will carry greater culpability. An unrepentant heart fails to respond to the light of Christ and brings Christ’s words of denunciation. To not hear “Woe to you!” from Christ, we must gaze on Christ and say, “Woe is me!”
