Today's Verse : Colossians 1:22


January 22, 2012

Once you were alienated from God ... 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.
-- Colossians 1:22
"Christians aren't perfect, just forgiven!" You've probably seen
this bumper sticker or something similar. In one sense this is
absolutely true. But, from God's point of view, Christians ARE
perfect. That's the incredible message Paul gives the Colossians.
Because of Jesus' sacrifice, God does not see our imperfections. He
sees us through Christ's perfection. Look at these concepts and
marvel! Look at how God views you and give thanks! Be humbled by
God's grace to us in Jesus and rejoice! Holy, without blemish, and
free from accusation -- there's nothing left to say but
Father, thank you for providing the sacrifice that makes me
clean. Thank you for seeing my worth through the perfection of
Jesus and his sacrifice. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for paying off my
debt to sin and for sharing your perfection with me. May my life
today, and everyday, more closely resemble the perfection you have
given me by your grace. In the name of my Savior Jesus, I pray.
Amen. ===
