Look at your lifestyle. Blaspheming the Holy Spirit can take two forms. The context of the passage shows that attributing the works of the H.S. to Satan is blasphemous. But in general, living a life that denies the God you (supposedly) belong to would also be blaspheming the Holy Spirit, because it supposedly lives in you. I view this second scenario more as a hypothetical. Everyone stumbles now and then, but a true regenerated believer in Christ will overcome and will not *ultimately* blaspheme the Holy Spirit because God is faithful to complete the work He started in that person.
It is not possible for a born again christian to blaspheme the HS. It is considered the only unforgivable sin. Our sins were forgiven us before we were born. Once we accept Jesus as savior we are then born again of the HS. If we do not receive Jesus as savior what we are doing at this point is blaspheming the HS. In Genesis God made covenant with Abram, the Fire and Smoke (HS) walked through the parts for Abram while God put him to sleep and since God knew that Abram would be unable to keep the covenant so the HS did it for Him. God did the same for us. It is the HS who lives in us that keeps the covenant with God on our behalf. So we cannot break covenant and therefore not blaspheme the HS. By not accepting Jesus as the sin offering is the blaspheming of the HS. It is rejecting the peace offering made by the HS in Jesus. It is saying that you don't want to make covenant with God and thus reject the benefits of the covenant and then suffer for the decision. This is the sin that sends people to hell. Then is when they will suffer for all their sins they committed here on earth. God will not reject His own and the HS in you cannot blaspheme Himself in spite of what the flesh may say in anger or emotion. 1 Cor 6:19-20 What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price : therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. KJV Since we are not our own we cannot speak against the one who has purchased our lives for us.
