Without BlemishSunday, February 5, 2017
“That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”
We are the glorious church of God and we have been presented having no spot, or wrinkle, holy and without blemish, through Jesus. He took our place and now the Father only sees His sacrifice. When He looks at us, we are righteous with His righteousness (2 Cor 5:21) and holy. Thank you, Jesus!
When you are praying, worshipping, in church, or for that matter anytime, and the devil reminds you of “things”, faults and you find yourself feeling condemned and not worthy, that’s another opportunity to speak life and declare that you ARE glorious, holy and without blemish!
Instead of being sin-conscious, be grace-conscious, Jesus-conscious, righteousness-conscious and forgiveness-conscious! Even in the Old Testament when the people brought their lamb sacrifice, the priest examined the lamb, not the person. If the sacrifice was without blemish, God accepted the sacrifice. Jesus was the perfect sacrifice and when God looks at you, He see’s Jesus.
You are holy and without blemish because of Jesus! Rejoice and never let sin-consciousness enter in!
