The Daily Light is good today.
“Christ … loved the church and gave Himself for her… that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing but that she should be holy and without blemish.” (Ephesians 5:25, 27)
I can’t imagine the love Jesus has for His church. It is incomprehensible! And I think about how it hurts Him when we sin and how He wants us to be “holy and without blemish.”
I know that I want this for my own life and the people around me. So I can only imagine how much more He wants it for us.
The Daily Light goes on to say, “Him we preach, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.” (Colossians 1:28)
WE PREACH JESUS! Therefore we should strive to be more like Him daily. We want to present everyone perfect in Christ – but how can we if we don’t work toward that perfection as well?
Thank you God for Your grace! Thank You Lord that by Jesus’ Blood, we can be presented holy in Your sight!
