All Sins Will Be Forgiven


Sometimes, when we read scripture, we pass over some parts because we know the famous part that is coming. Mark 3:28-29 is one of those passages. Here is what it says:

Truly,  I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin” - for they were saying “He has an unclean spirit.”

Almost everyone reads this passage and immediately thinks, talks and writes about the “unpardonable sin”. But, let us slow down and thing about the first part of the passage.

“…all sins will be forgiven the children of man…” That is a breathtaking sentence. Do not focus on the exception without considering the main point: all sins will be forgiven.

When you receive Christ as savior and Lord, believing in him as the Son of God who died for your sins and rose again, repenting of those sins and trusting him for eternal life, all your sins are forgiven.

That means all the sins you committed before you received Christ and all the sins you commit after you receive Christ. God forgives you because Jesus Christ paid the penalty for you sins when he died on the cross.
