“Truly, I say to you, all sins will be
forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy
Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”— for they were saying, “He has an unclean
spirit.” Mark 3:28-30
A very sick man went to the doctor, looking
for a cure to heal the disease that was going to take his life. The doctor dangled the hope of a cure before
him: a rare serum that could cure the
disease was available. But it was rare
and would cost a king’s ransom. The
doomed man could not afford it. Moved to
compassion for the man, the doctor took upon himself the task of obtaining the serum
In three days, the doctor returned, visibly shaken, his clothes torn and his face
stained with tears. With trembling hands he held out the vial of precious
medicine to the dying man. “I have the
serum for you. Itt took every cent I had. On my way here, I was in an
accident. My only son was with me, and
now he’s dead. It cost me my treasure,
and it cost me my son, but here you are.
Take it, and you will live.”
What do you suppose would happen if the sick
man smashed the vial of costly serum on the ground, refusing what had cost the
doctor everything? The doctor would be
astonished, and the man would be doomed with no hope of life.
That’s exactly what happens to a person who
willfully refuses the gift of God’s salvation through Jesus alone. God gave the thing most precious to Him – the
life of His Son, Jesus Christ – to purchase the forgiveness of your sin. Jesus died a horrible death in your
place. To continue to refuse that gift and
to attribute evil to God and to His Son Jesus is the one thing for which there can
be no forgiveness, resulting in eternal condemnation.
But, praise God, when any person confesses
faith in Jesus as the Son of God and repents of his sin, all of his sin will be
completely wiped away, and he will be reborn to everlasting life! Every person must decide: accept
the grace of God through Jesus Christ and live, or reject it and die.
I am praying for you today. Receive Jesus and live!
Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
