Scripture: Ephesians 1:3-4, 1 John 3:20-21
In Ephesians 1:3-4 we are introduced to the Sonship Gifts. This passage says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love…” In the past few months, we have been looking at the primary fruit of being chosen and holy before God and realizing that we are blameless as a result of the progressive growth and development of application of the Blood of Christ. Blood-bought holy soil grows plants that are blameless, especially when we allow ourselves to germinate in the soil of God’s Word. We grow into blamelessness. One of the fruits of being blameless is the fearlessness that God desires for the church in the last days. Number one, we were chosen. Number two we were declared holy by the Blood of the Lamb, and number three we were blood-washed and declared without blame. We know biblically that the fruit of being blameless is a clear conscience that does not condemn. 1 John 3:20-21 says, “For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us we have confidence toward God.” Confidence toward God can grow into fearlessness. Our call as believers is to be fearless representatives of Christ. We are called to walk in His fullness in the last days. That is the goal of growth. That is our destiny. God has called us there and the Sonship gifts are the soil that will produce that. We are explaining the contribution of being blameless as it contributes to fullness!
