And Today the Topic is: You’re Accepted of Him
Key Takeaway Rhapsody of Realities May 21 2023
- Believers are accepted and chosen by God through His grace, not by their own works. It emphasises the freedom from guilt and condemnation in Christ, encouraging believers to live in the awareness of God’s acceptance and love. Today’s devotional calls for a daily experience of divine fellowship and the pursuit of righteous living.
Today’s Message For Rhapsody Of Realities
Pastor Chris is saying to us: You’re Accepted of Him and our opening scripture comes from the Book of Ephesians 1:4-6 (KJV) and it says:
According as he hath chosen us in him…unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ… wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved
Some people live their lives in the hope that God will accept them on the basis of their good works. But our good works aren’t enough to give us a right standing with God. You may even be going through a situation and thinking, “When I look at my life, I can’t even find any sin; so, why am I going through this?”
Well, the Bible says For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast”(Ephesians 2:8-9). Furthermore, Galatians 2:16 says, “… by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”
The struggle to live right, to please God so as to be accepted by Him, is unnecessary. Why should you work so hard, struggling to be accepted by Him, when the Spirit already calls us through the Word as, “.accepted in the beloved” (Ephesians 1:6)? You’ve been accepted and declared righteous before God. Accept this truth and now live to please Him accordingly.
Read Yesterday’s Devotional
God chose you before the foundation of the world to be holy and without blame before Him in love, and He predestined you to be accepted in His presence. It’s part of what His righteousness in your spirit has produced for you; you can boldly stand in the presence of God without guilt, inferiority or condemnation.
In Christ, you have right standing before God. Hallelujah! Now that you’re born again, you dwell in God’s presence, and you’re at liberty to serve Him as He desires. Until and unless this becomes your present-hour consciousness, your Christian walk will be a struggle Christianity for you should be an everyday experience of divine fellowship.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your love, grace and righteousness at work in me. Thank you for choosing me to be holy and without blame before you in love. I walk in wisdom today, fulfilling your good pleasure and producing works of righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them
Ephesians 1:4-6 AMPC
4 Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love.
5 For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [[a]because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]—
6 [So that we might be] to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace (favor and mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.
