Our Impossible Task
We are often told that God's Word tells us to live "holy and without blame." Now I am sure there are some of you that think this an obtainable goal but you are totally lying to yourself. "There are none righteous no not one" and it that is not exclusive enough it also states, "There are none that seek after God or His righteousness." So how then are we to be holy and without blame? Look at this verse carefully for the answer:
Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
From the Greek we can see this verse to say, "For to select us IN HIM before the conception of the Cosmos, that we to be holy and unblemished directly in front of Him in love."
It is not you that picked God as so many of you have been raised to believe. It is God that selected all of us to one day stand before Him not as sinners but in the newness and holiness that He provides to all of us as One people. For it is written, "In Adam all were made sinners in Christ (Word of God) all will be made whole."
One day very soon everyone "both great and small" will stand before the Throne of God not to be condemned but to be recognized as every knee shall bow and confess that He is Lord. In the fulness, completeness and perfection all of us sinners will find this truth!
Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
Col 1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
Col 1:22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
Until the resurrection and our changing from corruption and mortality to incorruption and immortality we will all be nothing more than sinners depending upon God. Now that is the truth or you can run around believing you are holy now which is a LIE!
