Few words in the Bible have caused more anxiety and fear than these. Those that have studied the Bible do not agree exactly what it means to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. But not matter about the exact meaning of the words; they stand as a warning against a terrible danger. They are like a flashing red warning sign hung over a dangerous place. While we may not know what constitutes the sin, it certainly is our duty to keep as far away from it as possible.
Any deliberate and determined resistance to the work of the Holy in our lives is a sure-fire way to approach this danger. Jesus‘ words should encourage us to pay attention to everything the Holy Spirit is telling us — that we should never resist, but always yield to his influence.
We have no other Friend in this world who can guide us home. If we drive him away from us for ever, we shall be left in the darkness of eternal night. We don’t know how long we could continue to reject Him without going over the line that marks the limit of hope, but the very thought that there is such a line somewhere should shock us into accepting the guidance He offers.
