(You’re His Perfect Masterpiece)
To The Bible: Ephesians 2:10 AMP
“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].”
Sometimes, some Christians say that the Holy Ghost accuses or condemns them, but that’s not true because the Holy Spirit doesn’t do so. They’ve been taught wrongly, and their hearts aren’t trained enough to know that the relationship between the Christian and the Holy Spirit does not include accusation or condemnation. He only convicts the world (not the believer) of not believing in Jesus Christ (John 16:8-9).
He doesn’t see any faults or errors in you, because you’re His masterpiece! When God raised you up with Jesus, He did so “…in order to present you holy and faultless and irreproachable in His [the Father’s] presence” (Colossians 1:22 AMP). If you’re faultless in His sight, who on earth dares condemn or accuse you? You’re holy and justified.
However, God’s Word says that “If our conscience condemns us, we know that God is greater than our conscience and that he knows everything” (1 John 3:20 GNB). So, what should you do when you feel condemned about something you did? Go back to the Word and find out what it says! Don’t assume you know when you hear something judgmental but sounding religious; you might not be able to tell what God’s mind about it is, and you’re likely to feel condemned. But when you expose yourself to the truth of God’s Word, you’ll walk in the freedom that God called you into. Don’t condemn yourself because you’re perfect in Christ!
I’ve been justified and I’ve got peace with God now. The Lord has freed me and I live free and above blame. I trust His Word and His Spirit to teach me and groom me to maturity in all things.
Do you have thoughts in your heart that condemn you? Search the Word; find scriptures that talk about such issues and speak in line with the Word you find.
