Today’s passage, Matthew 12:22-37, raises a key question: How do I get the power of the good treasure in my heart so that I will speak good words?
Another obvious question is raised. Jesus also says there is a sin which cannot be forgiven. Is it unforgivable when a follower of Jesus relapses into sin? Is the unforgiveable sin some unintentional thought or word that suddenly seals one’s fate, unbeknownst to us? Is it a failure to respond to the manipulative invitation of a sweating evangelist? What is the unforgiveable sin? And, if there is one, have I committed it? This is an important question.
Is your way of seeing life formed more by Jesus or by your culture?
Are you in any way positioning yourself against the work of the Spirit of God in your life?
What could you do to allow the Spirit of God to change your heart?
