KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 1:6 KJV” To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved”
Our verse of consideration is Eph 1:6b “wherein we are made accepted in the beloved. This is a very important statement for the children of God. It means the child of God is highly favored. There is no condemnation to the man who is in Christ, because he is accepted or favored in Christ. As a child of God, you are highly favored because the Lord Jesus took away all your sins. (John 1:29)
The book of Romans 8:31–37 shows us some amazing facts of God’s favor towards the believer.
1.Verse 31 reveals that God is for us and no one can be against us. No enemy can over power us.
2.Verse 32 also shows us that since God did not spare our Lord Jesus but allowed Him to die for us, how will He not with Him give us all things. God keeps no good thing from us.
3. Verse 33 tells us no one can lay any charge against us. It is Christ who justifies us. He died to acquit us from any charges. We must not allow any short coming to keep us from accessing any blessing, prepared for us in Christ
4.Verse 34, reveals that no one can condemn us, because the Lord Jesus was condemned to die in our place. Jesus is risen and is presently praying for us. If the Lord does not condemn us, no one can do so. Do not condemn yourself under any condition
5 Verses 35-37 also makes it clear that nothing shall separate us from the love of God. No matter what happens to us, God’s love for us is never weakened. Satan may raise certain challenges or difficult times. Our father’s love for us is ever the same, whether in good times or bad times. Rom 8:38 & 39 KJV” For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
All these blessings are made available to us because we are highly favored or accepted in the beloved.
I am accepted in the beloved. The Lord Jesus died in my place, made accursed for me and so l can’t be cursed. No good thing would He withhold from me. I am blessed in every way.
Psalms 84:11 KJV For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Psalms 23:5 KJV “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over”.
