Forgivable Sins
 

By faith the harlot Rahab did not perish with those who did not believe, when she had received the spies with peace.

1 John 1:8-9

 

 

Sometimes Christians wonder if they have committed a sin that God cannot forgive. Or they wonder if they have committed the unforgivable sin (Matthew 12:31-32). As for the latter possibility, Jesus was speaking to Pharisees who willfully rejected Christ’s divine credentials as the Son of God. No Christian is in danger of committing that sin.


As for committing a terrible sin that God cannot forgive, the Bible is clear: All have sinned (Romans 3:23), and all may receive eternal life (John 3:16). Because we live in societies that are required to exact punishment for crimes, it is difficult to comprehend the idea that “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). But He is! A pagan prostitute named Rahab found that out personally. She threw herself on the mercy of the Israelites’ God when His people entered Canaan. And she was forgiven her past and rewarded for her faithfulness (Joshua 2).


God withholds forgiveness from no one who needs and seeks it. If that applies to you today, confess your sins and be forgiven.


He may look on death with joy, who can look on forgiveness with faith.

In 1991 a huge deposit of natural diamonds was found at a location in a remote corner of Canada's Northwest Territory, about 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle. By 1998, the EKATI mine was operational and it was estimated that just one pit would yield an astonishing number of diamonds, seven or eight million carats. In fact, from 1998 through 2009, 40 million carats were produced from the mine's six open pits.
