Before God


He has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.”
Colossians 1:22 (NLT)

What you believe about yourself is key to the way you live. And what you believe God thinks about you can help the way you believe about yourself. That is why Paul wrote his letter to the Colossian church. He wanted us to know who we are. He starts out saying that we were the very enemies of God, separated by our evil thoughts and actions. But just as quick, he shares that God, through the death of Christ on the cross, has now accepted us as His friends. In their book “TrueFaced” the authors say it this way, “As a maturing Christian, I no longer define myself by my sin or the sin committed against me, but by who God declared me to be.” And what has God declared about you? He has declared that you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him as His friend. Today, let this reality sink deep into your heart. Let it fill you with joy and peace as you live for Him. You are God’s friend!

Father, thank You for declaring me holy and blameless as I stand before You as Your friend. Thank You that through the death and resurrection of Christ, Your son, I am Your child, completely loved and forgiven of all my sins. Help me to live in this reality.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
