Accepted in Christ’s love
Ephesians 1:6 “To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.”
You are accepted in Jesus.
You are accepted unconditionally because Jesus loves you.
In this world, there are lot of pressures to meet expectations in every area of society.
But when it comes to God, He has taken away all the pressure and all the obligations.
As unbelievers in the past, our sin was that we were not like God and that is why we die.
We had fallen short of God’s glory in the past.
But Jesus loved us so much that He died for our sins and rose from the dead declaring to the believer that you are forgiven all sin, made righteous and accepted.
Ephesians 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;”
You have been made alive with Jesus, forgiven all sin.
Colossians 2:13 “God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,”
You are accepted the way you are.
It’s because Jesus lives in you.
You don’t need to change to become accepted by God.
He forgave you all sins the moment you believed in Jesus.
He took away your sin.
He made you perfect.
The pressure is gone.
The guilt is gone.
The obligation is gone.
You are ACCEPTED in the BELOVED.
You are the BELOVED of Jesus.
