One thing that amazes me is how people read the text of today’s devotional and miss the great promise that all sins but one will be forgiven if one repents and believes. Do you focus on the one that will not be forgiven or the glorious news of all the others that will be forgiven those who trust in Christ? God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Matthew 12:31Matthew 12:31 English Standard Version (ESV)
31 Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.
“Hearken, guilty one, there is remission of sin even for thee! Thou who hast lain asoak in sin till thou art crimsoned with it, till thy sin is ingrained into thy very nature, there is power with God to make that crimson white as snow, for ‘all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men.’ Whenever I repeat those gracious words of our Lord, I feel as if I had said something far more sweet than the choicest poetry, something infinitely more deserving to be written in letters of gold than all the sayings of the wisest philosophers of old. Tell the guilty man that God has mercy reserved for him, and is prepared to forgive him, — what better news can he ever hear?”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLIV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1898), p. 424]
