HOLY BEFORE THE THRONE;
(Jesus Made You Pure And Faultless In God’s Eyes)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Ephesians 1:4 TLB “Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own through what Christ would do for us; he decided then to make us holy in his eyes, without a single fault—we who stand before him covered with his love.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
The blessings of the Christian are just so profound and transcendent, to say the least. One of these blessings is that you’re chosen in Christ to be blameless. Society may blame you; your parents, or even your siblings may blame you. Your neighbours, friends and schoolmates may blame you when something goes wrong. But there’s one who never lays blame on you—your heavenly Father. Why isn’t He blaming you? It’s because Jesus took responsibility for all our errors, and now, you’re presented to the Father as holy, unblameable, without reproach.
Hebrews 3:1 CEV says, “My friends, God has chosen you to be his holy people. So think about Jesus, the one we call our apostle and high priest!” The Word calls us “holy.” People may look at you as unholy, but God says you’re holy and accepted before Him in love. This is the reason we can pray to God and expect answers. It’s the reason we can change hopeless situations, because we have a right of hearing in the presence of Almighty God. The Bible tells us something so insightful in 2 Corinthians 5:19. It says, “…God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them….” Think about that: If because of Jesus, the sinner isn’t being held accountable for his sins, what about you who are now in Christ? (See Romans 5:10).
Colossians 1:21-22 GNB says, “At one time you were far away from God and were his enemies because of the evil things you did and thought. But now, by means of the physical death of his Son, God has made you his friends, in order to bring you, holy, pure, and faultless, into his presence.” This should make you shout for joy! Jesus has presented you holy, pure, and faultless before God, and it doesn’t matter how much satan accuses you or how others may blame you, God has chosen you to be holy and without blame before Him in love. Hallelujah!
