ABC Jesus: A
A: ACCEPTED! In Jesus we find acceptance! See Colossians 1:21-22
” At one time you were separated from God. You were His enemies in your minds, and the evil things you did were against God. 22 But now God has made you His friends again. He did this through Christ’s death in the body so that He might bring you into God’s presence as people who are holy, with no wrong, and with nothing of which God can judge you guilty. “
“ Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Christ, God has given us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world. 4 That is, in Christ, He chose us before the world was made so that we would be His holy people—people without blame before Him. 5 Because of His love, God had already decided to make us His own children through Jesus Christ. That was what He wanted and what pleased Him, 6 and it brings praise to God because of His wonderful grace. God gave that grace to us freely, in Christ, the One He loves. “
ABLE! 2 Corinthians 9:8
8 And God can give you more blessings than you need. Then you will always have plenty of everything—enough to give to every good work.
With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine.
AWESOME! PSALM 68:35
“God, you are wonderful in your Temple. The God of Israel gives his people strength and power. Praise God!”
DEUTERONOMY 10:17 “The Lord your God is God of all gods and Lord of all lords. He is the great God, who is strong and wonderful. He does not take sides, and he will not be talked into doing evil.”
AGAINST SIN! COLOSSIANS 3: 5-6
“So put all evil things out of your life: sexual sinning, doing evil, letting evil thoughts control you, wanting things that are evil, and greed. This is really serving a false god. 6 These things make God angry.“
