Accepted in the Beloved

mstlion / Pixabay

As a child of God you’re not trying to gain Gods approval. He has already approved of you in Christ. He is pleased of you. Anything you’re now doing to make God accept you only demonstrate your ignorance of God’s word or unbelief in the word.

To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved (Eph. 1:6 [KJV]).

[So that we might be] to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace (favor and mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved [AMP].

As a child of God you’re not trying to gain Gods approval. He has already approved of you in Christ. He is pleased of you. Anything you’re now doing to make God accept you only demonstrate your ignorance of God’s word or unbelief in the word.

God is pleased with you because of Christ not because of what you have done or doing. He is please with you because of what Christ has done for you. You have been accepted stop trying to be accepted.

You were MADE accepted. You did not become accepted by your strenuous efforts. God himself made you accepted. So what else do you think you can do that will make you more acceptable? Acceptance before God is not a process; it’s not something you achieve by good works. It’s the work of grace. It’s one of the benefits of the finished work of Christ for you.

You’re not going to be accepted. The scripture says you have been accepted. It’s written in past tense. It’s already a done deal. You’re to just enjoy it now. Not to try to attain it someday. You have been accepted already, there is nothing you can do to become unacceptable. Your acceptance is irreversible; nothing can change your status as ‘the accepted’ of God.

All this is now yours by the GRACE of God. Its unmerited, it’s undeserved, unearned. Nobody can merit or deserve it. Your good works can never qualify you for it. Stop bribing God with your good works so that he will accept you. He has accepted you already. Stop trying to be what you already are. Imagine a man trying to be a man.

Stop trying to get what you already have. It’s like trying to have an eye while you already have one. Stop trying to go to where you already are. It’s like trying to enter a room where you are already in. it’s that frustrating. Beloved, just go ahead and enjoy what God has already made you.

He did all these for us so that we might be ‘to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace’. He didn’t do it because of any good thing in us or because he wanted some favour from us. See how GOD’S WORD translation renders our key scripture, Eph.1:6, ‘so that the kindness he had given us in his dear Son would be praised and given glory’.

God wants to showcase us to the world so that they will see us and praise him for his wonderful handwork. He wants to brag about you.

You may have made a mistake and you’re now feeling so bad and condemned. I tell you the truth today you’re not accepted or unaccepted by your performance but simply by his grace. God still accepts you as his child despite your mistake.

Believing this simple truth is what will effortlessly and unconsciously empower you out of sin and any bad habit. God still loves you in your mistake. He will not throw you away because you have committed sin. This truth will deliver you from sin and the bondage of religion. You must believe this.
You’re not tolerated by God but eternally accepted. This is a free gift not a reward of your many good works.

The word accepted here is ‘’charitoo’’ it is the same Greek word translated ‘highly favored’ in Luke 1:28 ‘And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art HIGHLY FAVOURED, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women’. Ephesians 1:6 and Luke 1:28 are the only two places in scriptures where this particular word is used.

So this means as an accepted child of God, you’re highly favoured. So God has highly favoured you. Knowing you’re accepted is knowing you’re favoured. Because you’re accepted you will consistently see high favours in your life. The sort of favour that is exclusive.

Mary’s favour was exclusive. Always expect unusual favours in your life because you are the accepted of God.
