Today’s Promise

I Am Holy, Faultless, and Blameless Before God

Colossians 1:21-22

Once you were alienated and hostile in your minds because of your evil actions. But now He has reconciled you by His physical body through His death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before Him.


God didn’t wait for you to clean up your act before He began His work of salvation.

While you were still in rebellion and hostile toward Him, He began working in your life to draw you to Himself.

As a follower of Christ, Jesus presents you to God without sin or accusation. This promise describes three ways Christ will present you to God.

1. Holy – Jesus made you holy. He has taken His holiness and placed it on you. The word holy is closely related to the word saint. Jesus has made you a saint because He has set you aside and made you holy before God.

2. Faultless – This is the picture of the lamb that was sacrificed in the Old Testament. It had to be perfect without spot. When God looks at you He sees you spotless and perfect before Him.

3. Blameless – God not only made you holy but makes it to no accusation can be made against you. Satan may whisper in your ear an accusation, but in Christ, no charge can be made against you. All you have ever done, or will ever do has been forgiven through the precious blood of Christ.

When you come to God in prayer, Jesus presents you as one who is without sin, perfect, and with no accusations against you. 

Look at that promise once again.

Once you were alienated and hostile in your minds because of your evil actions. But now He has reconciled you by His physical body through His death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before Him. – Colossians 1:21-22

Make this confession today.

While I still hated God, He was working in me.
In Jesus Christ, I am holy.
His death has made me blameless before God.
Every sin I have or ever will commit is forgiven.

In Jesus Name,
Amen
