Am I Pleasing To God 

December 8

 

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,” - Romans 5:1

At the moment of our salvation we were placed in Christ Jesus. This is true of you and true of me. If we are going to move forward in the Christian life, we need to understand that we are fully acceptable and totally pleasing to God. If you are not clear on this you will live your whole Christian life in a subtle form of bondage, not knowing if you have ever done enough to feel pleasing and acceptable to God.  

To enjoy fellowship with God, we must know all of our sins have been taken away by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, we have been forgiven of every sin, past, present, and future, and we are clothed with His righteousness that is acceptable to God.
