An Unforgivable Sin

“Brianna, come on. Open the door. What’s wrong?” asked Kaylin. She heard her best friend crying and pried open the door. Finding Brianna curled up on the bathroom floor, Kaylin knelt down next to her. “My parents are going to kill me!” Brianna cried, unable to see Kaylin through her tears. “Why? What happened?” Kaylin asked. Brianna pointed to the counter top. A positive pregnancy test sat there. “Oh, Brianna.” Kaylin wrapped her friend in a hug. Brianna sighed deeply. “Josh and I broke up. He doesn’t want anything to do with me or this baby. What am I going to do? Having premarital sex is an unforgivable sin to my parents.” “Even if your parents don’t forgive you, you know God will because you belong to Jesus,” said Kaylin. “Your sins are nailed to the cross.” • • • That night, Kaylin stood with Brianna as she told her parents the news. Tears spilled down Brianna’s cheeks. “I know this is an unforgivable sin. You guys don’t love me anymore, do you?” That’s when Brianna’s parents took her into their arms. “Brianna, we love you,” said her dad. Mom nodded. “This isn’t unforgivable,” she whispered. • Alexis Wohler • Reread today’s Scripture passage. In Christ, why is there no unforgivable sin? • If you’re facing a situation like Brianna’s, who are trusted Christians in your life you can reach out to for help? • If you’re facing an unexpected pregnancy and need someone to talk to, you can get caring, confidential, and free support through the Pregnancy Decision Line at For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NLT)
