“I will accept you with your sweet savour.”-Ezekiel 20: V41
Beloved, the merits of our great Redeemer are as sweet savour to the Most High. There was a sweet savour in His active life by which He honoured the law of God, and made every precept to glitter like a precious jewel in the pure setting of His own person. Such, too, was His passive obedience, when He endured with unmurmuring submission, hunger and thirst, cold and nakedness, and at length sweating great drops of blood in Gethsemane.
What a preciousness must there be in Him to overcome our want of preciousness. What cleansing power in His blood to take away sin such as ours and what glory in His righteousness to make such unacceptable creatures to be accepted in the Lord.
Beloved, mark this believer, how sure and unchanging must be our acceptance, since it is in Him! Do not ever doubt your acceptance in Jesus. Notwithstanding all your doubts, and fears, and sins, Jehovah’s gracious eye never looks upon you in anger; though He sees sin in you, in yourself, yet when He looks at you through Christ, He sees no sin. You are always accepted in Christ, are always blessed and dear to the Heavenly Father’s heart. Therefore lift up a song, and you will see the incense of the merit of the Saviour coming up, before the sapphire throne and let the incense of your praise go up also. For when your praises go up, the blessings of God comes down on you. Amen!
JESUS LOVES YOU. Start your day with Jesus.
Beloved, have a blessed day
