(Numbers 3-4, Mark 3:22-35)
…but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”— for they were saying, “He has an unclean spirit.” Mark 3:29-30 ESV)
The Trinity operates within the confines of the honor system, deferring, manifesting and yielding to one another in perfect submission. Jesus came to do all of the will of the Father, through the power and person of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit comes to reveal the Father and all that belongs to Jesus to us. And the Father loves us, and sent His only Son to us, pouring out the Holy Spirit into our hearts.
We have been invited into an existing communion, existing intimacy. We have been invited to relate to the Divine relationship. Jesus was accused of relating to the devil for his power. And this is nothing short of blasphemy. Instead of thanking the person of the Holy Spirit for deliverance and healing, credit was given to Satan. This is blasphemy.
Everything Jesus did and does was in submission to the Father through the Spirit. And everything the Holy Spirit does is the manifestation of the heart of the Father. May we yield more. Respect the Holy Spirit more. May we notice Him more and live into the honor system that was established before the foundation of the world. May we never disregard, or lose sight of you. And may we give credit where credit is due!
