Gene’s Daily Scriptural Postings.

27 July 2022

Paul tells us that we are "accepted" by God now that we are in Christ. The only other place that Greek word appears in the New Testament is when the angel tells Mary that she is "highly favored" by God. The original Greek word here means a whole lot more than our English words. Here is what the Strong’s definition of this word says it means:

  • make accepted, be highly favoured.

  • to make graceful, charming, lovely, agreeable

  • to peruse with grace, compass with favour

  • to honour with blessings

This is how God now sees you and what He does for you now that you believed in Jesus. God accepts you and finds favor in who you are. In fact, His grace pursues you. You can't outrun it. His favor surrounds you. He filled you with grace. If you will just believe what He's already done on your behalf and let that grace out, people around you will see it, look favorably on you, and be attracted to you as a result. God honors you with blessings. Will you step into all God has for you and receive His honor and blessings?

To the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. — Ephesians 1:6 (NKJV)
