Sometimes I dwell on all the mistakes that I have made in life. It is a human thing to do. I find myself feeling guilty and hating myself all over again. Then I realize that God has already forgiven me. Why am I bringing up the past?
Because Jesus died, we were reconciled and became one with God. Like the wayward son coming back home after years of hellraising, we were united with our Heavenly Father.
Because of Jesus’ blood, we were forgiven. We were made blemish free without any accusations. We were made new. We may not be perfect people, but we are perfect to God. We just need to have faith and believe and live it. Jesus has risen. So has our faith.
But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation-if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from hope held out in the gospel. Colossians 1:22-23 NIV
His love will keep us from stumbling. His peace will keep us united. Our faith brings us into his amazing presence. His sacrifice brought us in unity with God. What a mighty God we serve!
To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great glory-to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore. Jude 1:24-25 NIV
