No Shame

TODAY’S VERSE

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.
Ephesians 1:4 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Guilt, shame, condemnation, these negative concepts fill the minds of so many Christians. They are the result of events, circumstances and lies that have shaped us. How contrary to what God thinks of us. Paul wants us to see the truth so he takes us back to the beginning, before we were ever influenced in this world. He shows us who we really are. He confirms that before the world was ever made, you were part of God’s plan. He created you holy and without any shame. So even though you were born into an earthly family you were first born into God’s. Paul writes, “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Can you imagine that? God received great pleasure in creating you. He sees you as His child, holy, without fault in His eyes. The question is, do you? Today, believe it. See yourself as you really are, God’s beloved child.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You that before You made the world, You loved me and chose me in Christ to be holy and without fault in Your eyes. Thank You for adopting me into Your family. Help me today to live in this wonderful spiritual reality.
AMEN

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.
