What is The Sin for which there is NO Forgiveness?
Jesus spoke three words that are so solemn, so hopeless, so devastating that they are hard to even comprehend for us who know and love Him. Jesus said: never has forgiveness.
Every day the one truth I cling to is the gracious forgiveness of our loving Savior. I know that however many times I fail – He forgives. I know that how ever many times I fall – He restores. I know that how ever many times I sin – He cleanses, restores, and forgives. That is so encouraging, so refreshing, so hope filled. But Jesus said: never has forgiveness. Those are the darkest words of all – the Endless Doom of a Soul.
Those three words have shaken many believers to the very core of their being. Those words have troubled many sincere Christians, dogging their steps all through life. Those words have become what we call today – the unpardonable sin. Jesus said: never has forgiveness. Those are the darkest words of all – the Endless Doom of a Soul.
If you have ever wondered if you have sinned a sin that Jesus may not ever forgive – you need to hear what Jesus has to say today.
If you have ever secretly feared that you may someday face Jesus and have to answer for your sins – and you fear Him turning you away – you need to let Him speak words of comfort and assurance to your heart from His Word today.
As we open to Mark 3:20-30 we come to the place where Jesus pronounced the greatest doom of all. In verse 29 Jesus said: never has forgiveness.
