Ephesians 1:6 "To the praise of the glory of his grace which he freely bestowed on us in the beloved”
There is probably no higher Pinnacle of praise to the glorious grace of God then in the first few chapters of Ephesians and there is possibly no more staggering truth for believers than to be accepted in the beloved.
We are accepted by God not simply because we trust in Jesus , but because Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price to give us eternal life. Christ has already accomplished what was necessary to bring us into the family of God all we have to do is to accept him into our lives by faith.
Human acceptance is often conditional and temporary. We accept those who accept us and are like us. God’s acceptance of us is neither conditional nor temporary. He “Totally accepts us”.
He has forgiven our past, he lives in our present, and he holds our future!
So over the next few days I encourage you
. Praise God for your Acceptance
. Rejoice in your Salvation
You Are Family!
