I have a news flash for you! This idol will NEVER work.
Ephesians, my favorite book of the Bible, says in 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Spiritual Blessing-have you wondered like me what these blessing are? Let's read on...
This God has CHOSEN you. He chose you before the foundation of the world. Before you were born He chose you. Before you had your first thought, He chose you. Before you could do your first good deed or your first sin, He chose you. As this truth sets in, you are made free. There is no need for self esteem, only God esteem, which is given freely. He chose you to holy and blameless. He adopted you. He loves you-before you were created in your mother's womb.
He has a purpose for you-to be holy and blameless in His sight. Please don't let the striving begin here. We are not make holy and blameless by our works. Our Savior Christ Jesus makes us holy and blameless. I don't understand how this works but when we trust and surrender our life to Jesus, we are made clean, holy, and blameless.
God chose us and set us apart by His good pleasure. It pleased God to extend His grace to us through His Son Jesus. You are accepted and loved by Jesus. This truth should make your heart bow in worship. Bow before Him today, laying the worthless of idols of people worship at His feet and stand clothed in His righteousness. Worship is all He desires from you!
