Blameless 


Do you ever feel like “What’s the point of letting my light shine? Nobody is seeing it anyway.”

I’m right there with you. But by believing that there isn’t any point we are believing a lie from the enemy. There is a point: to simply chase after Jesus regardless of what is going on around you. Being blameless is completely independent of a response to your witness and it is what we are told to be. 

Friend, keep fighting. Keep loving. Keep in the ministry he has called you to. You aren’t living your life for others. You are living your life for Jesus. He has called you to be blameless. So say “yes” to where he leads you. Say “no” to the enemy. “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” Psalm 27:14

Scripture taken from:

Psalm 27:11-14

Blameless

Ephesians 1:4

“He tried to take advantage of me!!! I screamed and begged him not to and he finally ran away!!” Potiphar’s wife painted a vivid picture for her husband and his men of what had transpired between herself and Joseph, all the while holding Joseph’s garment.

Potiphar left in an outrage. He sentenced Joseph to jail time.

Joseph, an innocent man, would spend two years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit.

Sometimes things we say or do are misinterpreted. Sometimes people just try to do us wrong in whatever way they can.

God knows this will happen. He also knows that it’s out of our control. So He tells us to be blameless and He’ll take care of the rest.

Take comfort that He is a just Judge, that He knows the truth and that He has the final word.

Blinders

II Peter 3:14

Be blameless.

Go about your day abstaining from sin. Follow the Spirit’s lead. Glorify The Lord in everything you do.

The world might falsely accuse you but stay focused on staying pure in The Lord. He sees and knows all and will give a just judgment.

Qualified to Work

Philippians 4:19

Zacharias and Elisabeth. Two people in history that were chosen to be part of God’s plan. This couple would become parents to John the Baptist.

What made them so special?

They were righteous and blameless.

Righteousness. Yours was as filthy rags….until you accepted Christ’s.

Blameless. You were guilty of sin….until Jesus washed it away.

So where does this leave you, Child of God?

Conditioned to take part in God’s plan.

You’re special. You’ve been chosen.
