I AM ACCEPTED AND LOVED
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. (Ephesians 1:6)
You are now accepted in the Beloved. To be accepted means: to be acknowledged, approved, confirmed, sanctioned, authorized and so on. We are now accepted in the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. This is just too wonderful. We are also freely justified: “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” Romans 3:24.
God has justified us and adopted us into His wonderful family. This is a legal fact. You may not feel like it but it is so. How do we know this? by His Word of course. You have been justified, regenerated, made upright and set in right standing with God.
This wonderful gift is given to you freely by His Grace (unmerited favour) through the redemption that Jesus provided for you. This displays God’s Goodness and Graciousness.
Your price has been paid and your redemption is complete. You are now accepted and loved by God forever. God chose you, in Jesus before the creation of the world, to be Holy and blameless in His Sight. In His Great Love for you, He predestined you to be adopted as His Son/Daughter, through Jesus.

“Jesus Himself became my Righteousness, making it possible for me to enter into God’s blessings legally, Amen.”
