Today's Word for Pastors...

Acts 10:43
All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name."

Today's Preaching Insight...

What is the Unforgivable Sin?

When I served as pastor of a church in North Alabama during the early 1980s, there was an usher in our church named John. He was a sweet man who was always present in his regular spot to greet people and hand out bulletins, but John was a very troubled man. On several occasions, I met with him, and he began to weep as he told me that during World War II he had done something he thought was so evil that he was certain he had committed the unforgivable sin.

I tried to help him by telling Him God could forgive every sin except the sin of unbelief, but that didn't change his mind. John never told me what he had done, but he was convinced he never would go to heaven. He attended church and served the Lord faithfully. His family was active in the church, and his children were talented singers; but he was tormented with the belief that he had committed the unpardonable sin and never would make it to heaven.

Heaven

The Maldives is an island nation. Rising sea levels in the Indian Ocean threaten this land of 376,000 people. It is, in fact, the lowest nation on earth. The county is still facing terrible effects from the 2004 tsunami. In a desperate attempt to save their people, they want to buy land from Sri Lank or Australia to relocate the entire country. Christians hope someday to be relocated. We hope for a better land where there will be no tears, pain or death. The good news is there is plenty of room in eternity, and Jesus has paid the price for our new home.
