Colossians 1:12 NIV
Giving thanks to the Father, who had qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.
Beloved of the Lord, you are qualified to receive any and every blessing from God, not because of what you have done — but based on what Jesus did for you.
You don’t become qualified with God based on your performance, but you were made qualified by God when you received Jesus.
Being righteous — or in right standing with God — is all the qualification you need.
Moreover, righteousness is a free gift that you receive when you receive Jesus Christ. In fact, Jesus is our righteousness.
1 Corinthians 1:30 NIV It is because of Him (God) that you are in Christ Jesus who has become for us wisdom from God — that is, or righteousness, holiness and redemption.
2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV God made Him (Jesus) Who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Righteousness is not something you have earned or done, but a gift given by God (Romans 5:17).
Because of God’s grace, you can partake of the inheritance of the saints of God. You have a right– given to you by God — to share in all that God has.
You were qualified to receive every blessing of God by being made right with God.
You don’t have to do anything else so you can qualify. Its a gift, you just have to believe it!
You are qualified to be completely forgiven Eph 1:6-7
You are qualified to be filled with Good spirit. Acts 2:38-39
You are qualified to receive healing James 5:13
You are qualified to get prayers answered John 15:16
You are qualified to prosper 2 Cor 8:9
You are qualified to live with God in heaven Phil 3:20
“But Sir, you don’t know me. You don’t know what I have done. So what are you talking about?”
Good news! It does not matter!
Jesus paid the price to qualify you. Right now — because of Jesus’ blood — you qualify for all of God’s blessings.
So don’t believe the lie that you are not good enough. The blood of Jesus is what makes you good enough. Nothing else ever can!
“But I just don’t believe that. It doesn’t seem to work for me. Why?”
Well, you are right that if you don’t believe it, it won’t happen for you. All the blessings of God are only appropriated by faith.
In other words, you must believe what God says before you will see the fulfillment of the blessings happen in your life. Gal 3:22
Romans 5:2 NIV Through Whom (Jesus) we have gained access through faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
GOD HAS PROVIDED EVERYTHING FOR US BY HIS GRACE — purely undeserved by us — as a free gift.
However, we only have access to it by faith
Vs 1: Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
Vs 2: For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Vs 3: For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
I hope you are blessed?
I am qualified for all God’s blessings. God made me qualified #BecauseOfJESUS#
