We ARE holy and blameless

We were not IN CHRIST when we said a prayer one day…. we have ALWAYS been in Christ.

Ephesians 1:4: Just as He has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love

We should be is “hēmas einai” which means WE EXIST OR WE ARE!

We tend to condemn ourselves for falling short of the “we should.” But this is not saying we should or we need to be holy and blameless before Him… it’s saying we ALREADY ARE!

WOW!! That changes that Scripture…. He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, WE ARE holy and blameless before Him in love (or in HIm because He is Love!)
