Scripture: Mark 3:22-30
22And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, "He is possessed by Be-el'zebul, and by the prince of demons he casts out the demons." 23And he called them to him, and said to them in parables, "How can Satan cast out Satan? 24If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. 26And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end. 27But no one can enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man; then indeed he may plunder his house. 28"Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter; 29but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin" - 30for they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
What is the unpardonable sin which Jesus warns us to avoid? Jesus knows that his disciples will be tested and he assures them that the Holy Spirit will give them anything grace and help they need in their time of hardship. He warns them, however, that it's possible to reject the grace of God and to giving up the faith out of cowardice or doubt. Why is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit guilty? Blasphemy consists in uttering against God, inwardly or outwardly, words of hatred, criticism, or defiance. It's contrary to the respect suitable God and his holy name. Jesus speaks of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit as the inexcusable sin. Jesus spoke about this sin right away after the scribes and Pharisees had attributed his miracles to the work of the devil in its place of to God. A sin can only be unforgivable if regret is not possible. If someone frequently closes their eyes to God, shuts their ears to his voice, and reject his word, they bring themselves to a point where they can no longer distinguish God when he can be seen and heard. They become spiritually blind-sighted and speak of "evil as good and good as evil". Loving Infant Jesus, you are our hope and salvation. Be the ruler of our heart and the master of our home. May there be nothing in our life that is not under your lordship.
