In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 1 John 4:9
Many Christians worry needlessly about committing the unpardonable sin. Therefore, when it comes to this subject, we need to be very sober in our thinking. If you are a Christian and concerned that you have done something to cause God to turn from you, realize there is nothing strong enough to alter God’s love toward you.
His love is infinite and does not change like the seasons of time. He has committed Himself to you, and the love He displayed at Calvary is eternal proof of this commitment. The very fact that you are concerned about your relationship with God is evidence that you love Him and need Him.
Christ’s reference to the unpardonable sin is given to us to teach us what happens when a person refuses to accept Him as Savior and Lord. Jesus taught the only way a man or a woman experiences eternal salvation is by faith in the One whom God has sent.
When a person repeatedly denies Christ as Lord, he spiritually refuses God’s wondrous gift of salvation and yields instead to Satan’s lie. God is patient and long-suffering in his pursuit of mankind. However, He knows when man has said a final no to His love and forgiveness.
Take a moment today to renew my commitment to You. I declare my faith in Your Son, Jesus Christ. Take my life and use it for Your glory.
