"May God himself... sanctify you... May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it."
(1 THESSALONIANS 5:23-24)
To walk in favor with God and receive His covenant blessing, we are required to be blameless. Everything would have to be in as perfect an order in our lives as the work crew without even one tool gone missing. We must be guiltless before a perfect and holy God to enter into His heaven. Like Abram, we can only fall facedown before God, knowing that we are blameworthy.
Is there any hope? Our hope is Jesus who willingly took the blame for our sin. He loved us so much that we can now stand before God, blameless. What a great word of blessing this is for you and me today!
"I GRIEVE PUTTING CONFIDENCE IN REDEDICATING MY LIFE TO JESUS, INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON JESUS' DEDICATION TO ME IN THE GOSPEL."
