“Accepted in the beloved.”- Ephesians 1: V6
Beloved, we are in a state of privilege! “Accepted in the beloved” – this signifies that we are the children of divine complacence, even of divine delight. How marvelous that we sinners, should be the objects of divine love! But it is only “in the beloved.” that many believers seem to be accepted, having faced rejection from others.
When our spirit is lively, and our hopes bright, we know God accepts us, for we feel so high, so heavenly-minded, so drawn above the earth! But when afflictions comes our way, we feel that we are the victim and that they are no longer accepted by God. But if only we could but see all the high joys that Christ has for us in Him, we will claim it everyday, by calling on His wonderful name, Jesus Christ of Najareth.
We stand accepted in the One—the Great “I am that I am” who never alters, theOne who is always the beloved of God, always perfect, O how much happier are they now, who accepts Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
O that we would honour the Saviour! Rejoice then O believer, in this: that you are “definitely accepted in the beloved”.
Keep looking unto Christ, and you will see that God has rolled away your sins like the clouds and you are accepted in the Righteous One.
Stand firm therefore to fight with temptation, but knowing that you are already accepted in Christ, who has overcome the powers of evil. Nobody and nothing can destroy you, for you are accepted in Christ, who has broken all the enemies headfor you. Know by full assurance your glorious standing in Christ. There is no glorified soul that is more accepted than you. You are qualified in Christ. You are accepted in Christ. Amen! JESUS LOVES YOU. Start your day with Jesus.
Beloved, have a blessed day.
