To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
God created us in his own image. We are to walk with him and to worship him. All was well with God’s creation until sin entered into the lives of Adam and Eve.
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
At that very moment in time they ruined their special relationship with God; they sinned and they died…they died spiritually. God could have rejected his creation and allowed it to self-destruct, but he did not…because he loves us so very much. From Genesis to Revelation we have the recorded history of God’s love for his creation and his offer of a restored relationship with him.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Because all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, it is imperative that we restore our proper relationship as it was in the beginning of time. In order to re-establish that relationship we must accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ; believing that he died for our sins on the cross at Calvary, was buried and rose again from the grave. In doing so our hearts will be broken and we will be moved to repent of our sins against a holy and righteous God.
The word “wisdom” is used 234 times in the Scriptures. Obviously, God places great emphasis on wisdom; not on worldly wisdom, but the wisdom that comes from knowing God. In 2 Timothy 3:15 we are reminded that the Scriptures are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. It would be wise to gain such wisdom and restore your relationship with the Heavenly Father. In doing so, you will be accepted in the beloved.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself.
