The Unforgivable Sin

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 for him. 

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!
