Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. — Isaiah 55:7
"As there is no sin so small, but it deserves damnation; so there is no sin so great, that it can bring damnation upon those who truly repent.” — Westminster Confession of Faith, 15:4
Steps to Take
1. Consider: Have you ever worried that you may have committed an unforgivable sin against God?
2. Know: Jesus warned the Pharisees about committing the unforgivable sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit after they falsely accused Jesus of casting out a demon by demonic power (Matt. 12:22-32; Mark 3:22-30). The Pharisees were in the presence of the living God, watching the Lord perform a miracle, and they denied the true source of Jesus’ power—the Holy Spirit (Matt. 12:28). Instead, the Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out demons by Beelzebul, the prince of demons (Matt. 12:24).
3. Rest: All of a person’s sins are forgiven in Christ Jesus. It is impossible for God’s children to commit the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Indeed, the Spirit himself dwells within all believers (Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 3:16-17; 2 Cor. 1:22; Eph. 1:13) and “bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Rom. 8:16). While all Christians will continue to fight against sin as they still live in bodies corrupted by the fall, they don’t have to have anxiety about committing an unforgivable sin. Cling to your Savior and be at peace.
