Even when we are rebellous, there is Hope of Acceptance & Transformation

No matter how bad we have been, there is a certain transformation to greatness beyond our imagination ... all because of Him:

Col 1:21 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds,
Col 1:22 he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him,

1. Even when we are rebellious, evil, hostile to Him.

2. He paid the price for our redemption.

3. And transform us to be holy, blameless, without faults. In this new state, we can stand confidently before His throne.

4. The key is "Because of Him" and we don't have to do anything. It has nothing to do with our deserving or not. It is all His grace and love. It is Him who is holding our hands and not us trying to hold unto His hands. It is not about our performance to earn his acceptance but simply because of His love that we are to just rest confidently in Him.

Be happy because you are loved unconditionally. Enjoy His presence. So,

If you are sick, claim and receive His healings.
If you need help, ask and receive His guidance and aids.
If you are depressed, meditate on His love and receive the peace and joy. Said boldly as John said, "I'm the disciple whom Jesus loved".
