Raise Your Hand

Would every holy and blameless Christian please raise your hand? If you’re reluctant, then the great conspirator has moved you away from the gospel of Christ concerning you, perhaps focusing you upon your life apart from Jesus, and you’re suffering from the pain of accusation. It’s a lie and it hurts. Move back to the gospel. Remember and recover. Through the crucifixion and resurrection, you have been made holy and blameless – even flawless.

Colossians 1: 21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish (flawless) and free from accusation – 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant. (Parenthesis mine.)

Raise your hand?
