The Unforgivable Sin

Passage New International Version
Romans 5:3-5 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings,  because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Sprit, whom he has given us.
Romans 8:17 we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Philippians 1:29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him
Philippians  3:10-11 I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Hebrews 2:10 In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering.
Hebrews 12:6-7 the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.  Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons.  For what son is not disciplined by his father?
Hebrews 12:11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.  Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
1 Peter 2:20 But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.  To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
Revelations 3:19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline.

What's important is not fame, nor glory, but the ability to endure, to be able to bear one's cross and have faith.
