True innocence

Before the foundation of the world God decided that there would only be one way in which we could stand holy before Him. This is manifested in us experiencing His love for us which is the adoption of man in Jesus and in no other way. As believers we are partakers of what God has done in Jesus and therefore holy, without blame before Him in love.

Enjoy the blameless life that can be lived with the mindset of true innocence that has been given to you by God in Jesus Christ as a free gift.

Eph 1:4 Long before he laid down earth's foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love.
Eph 1:5 Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!)
Eph 1:6 He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son.
Eph 1:7 Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross, we're a free people--free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds. And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free!
