The Unpardonable Sin Part 1

Matthew 12:22-37

Is there a sin that the finished work of Christ cannot cover?  Our devotionals over the next few days will seek to provide us the answer,.  We note first of all that God does forgive sins.  God doesn't have to forgive sins, but God has chosen to forgive us.  He has provided the means by which forgiveness is possible.  We do not make forgiveness possible.  We do not clean up to be forgiven.  We are forgiven and God Cleanses us.  Before we dig into the verses let us survey a few Scriptures that reveal the forgiving heart of God.  Psalm 86:5, "For you, Lord, are kind and ready to forgive, abounding in faithful love to all who call on you."  This Psalm teaches the default mindset of God.  He is ready to forgive. You do not have to convince him to forgive.  John the beloved apostle wrote in  1 John 1:9 about forgiveness,  "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
