You are holy and free from blame because of Jesus Christ's death.
Colossians 1:21-22 (WEB)
21 You, being in past times alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil works,
22 yet now he has reconciled in the body of his flesh through death,
to present you holy and without blemish and blameless before him,
The New International Version Bible says Colossians 1:21-22 this way... 21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation. (NIV)
The sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross has done for each one of us what nothing else could do. Jesus completely reconciled us to His Father through His death so that He might present us holy and blameless to His Father. We are free from any accusation and the Father sees us completely spotless because of Jesus!
God sees us this way because of the shed blood of Jesus and not for anything that we have done to earn or deserve His favor. The next time a condemning thought comes to your mind, remember this promise and the incredible power of the cross. You are holy and completely free from blame because of Jesus Christ's death!
