“To the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved” (Eph. 1:6).
One thing that made Jesus’ faith absolutely unstoppable was His certainty about the Father’s love for and total acceptance of Him. You know why ours is tentative? He thought “acceptance”, we think rejection; He thought “beloved”, we think condemnation. Let’s change that. As sons of God, let’s think like the Son of God. Believe it, say it loud, say it clear, say it often: I’m totally accepted and beloved by God the Father. He’s thrilled over my life as He is about Jesus. Hallelujah!”
