Topic: Reconciled You In The Body Of His Flesh [Sunday July 16, 2017]
“And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreprovable in His sight.” – Colossians 1:21-22 (KJV)
From the above text, you will see that not only did Jesus save you from sin; He has reconciled you in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, unblameable and unreprovable in God’s sight. This isn’t something God is trying to do or going to do; He has already done it through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. So this isn’t a promise; it is a statement of fact! You have been reconciled with the Father and the latter part of the scripture clearly reveals to you the reason for the reconciliation: to present you holy, blameless and without reproach in God’s sight.
Child of God, it doesn’t matter what anybody thinks about you! God says you are holy, faultless and irreproachable. That is who you are to Him. That is how He’s presented you to Himself in Christ Jesus – holy and free of all accusations. This is where your audacity of faith comes from. This is the reason we’re bold as Believers to make demands on His name, decree a thing and see it come to pass. It is because our righteousness is of Him. It isn’t because of what you did or didn’t do. No! It’s because of what Jesus did.
You are free from all accusations. You can no longer be held bound by sin, guilt, and condemnation because God has reconciled you to Himself through the shed blood of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. I encourage you to stand before the mirror of God which is His word and see that you are faultless. Look into the word and see that you are justified, free, discharged, acquitted, no appeal and case closed.
