In Matthew 12:30–37, Jesus gives three stark warnings about spiritual ambivalence, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, and how one’s words and deeds reflect one’s heart. Pastor Chuck Swindoll takes you step by step through these warnings, which we all must remember.
One thing quickly becomes apparent to anyone who reads the gospels, the pages of Scripture that contain Jesus' words and actions: no one who heard His words failed to react. Some who listened shook their fists at Him. Others marvelled at a depth of wisdom they'd never heard before. And some believed His words, choosing to follow Him. Whatever the reaction, no one left His presence unaffected by the encounter.
Jesus easily stands as the most influential person in history. Even today, millions call Him Saviour. Why? What was it about His short time on earth that shook the world so? What did He say to grab people's hearts the way He did? Why do so many believe in Him as the Son of God?
