Bible Text: Luke 12:8-10 | Pastor Scott LaPierre
Series: The Gospel of Luke
If we want Jesus to acknowledge us, He wants us to acknowledge Him, but He says something that's not very straightforward. In verse 9 He said if we deny Him, He’ll deny us, but in verse 10 He said if we speak a word against Him it will be forgiven. Which is it? We can deny Jesus or we can’t? Also, why is it forgivable to speak a word against Jesus, but unforgivable to blaspheme the Holy Spirit? We learn the answer by considering the Holy Spirit's work in the life of a believer.
Lesson 1: You can be forgiven if you:
- (Part I) ________ Jesus (Luke 12:10; Matt 26:69-74).
- (Part II) __________________ Jesus (Acts 9:3-5).
- (Part III) ______________ Jesus (Acts 2:36-38).
Lesson 2: Speaking against Jesus is forgivable because of __________________ (Acts 3:14-19, 17:30, 26:9; 1 Tim 1:13; Luke 23:34).
Lesson 3: The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is unforgivable because:
- (Part I) ____ ______________ the ignorance (Acts 7:51-52; 15:26, John 16:8-14).
- (Part II) There’s no __________ __________________ for sins (Heb 10:26-29; Acts 4:12; John 3:36).
