WE ARE MADE BLAMELESS

Colossians 1:22
Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.


None of us is good enough to save ourselves. It doesn't matter your social statues, how much money you have or how well respected you are in your community. For us to live eternally with Christ, it depends solely on the grace of God. I have heard, seen and listened to some Christians judge others and criticised them so harshly as though they were above reproach or without sin. Forgetting so soon how they were only saved and made blameless purely by the grace of God. Today's scripture and verse tells us even though we have all sinned repeated over and over again, God has reconciled us to Himself through Christ's death making us blameless and without any fault. Wow, what a privilege!

God sees the things we are doing right rather than the things we are doing wrong. God is on our side. He has good things in store for those who love Him. His goodness extends toward us His children in great measure. The only way for us to remain blameless before God, is to put our trust and confidence in Jesus Christ. He alone is qualified, to reconcile us through death in the physical body for the forgiveness of our sins making us right and blameless before God. When God forgives our sins, our record is wiped clean and is as though we have never sinned.


Reflections:
Is there anything you have done that is weighing you down? Take it Jesus in prayer today and ask for forgiveness.  It doesn't matter what it is or how bad or serious it may seem, He sees everything you do and is only interested in your repentant  heart.
