Without Fault In His Eyes

by: Robin Johnson

Jesus did everything right so we could be right with God.

Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. Ephesians 1:4-5 NLT

How we see ourselves is often times very different than how God sees us. Even though we see our mistakes, weaknesses, and sins, the Bible tells us God sees us without a single fault. And this was His plan from the very beginning. Before we were ever born, God decided to bring everyone who believes into His family by sending Jesus to live a perfect life on our behalf - a life without sin, without mistakes, without a single fault. This is what He wanted to do for us, and it gave Him great pleasure.

Are you focusing on what you have done wrong? God wants you to know when you believe in Jesus, all He sees is everything Jesus has done right for you. You are without fault in His eyes, and He wants you to see yourself that way, too.

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the faultless life Jesus lived for me so I can be without fault in Your eyes.  Give me the eyes to see me the way You see me. Amen.
