[You…] he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.
A Central Purpose of the Cross
What was important enough to be the first thing you thought about this morning? What God cares about is your holiness.
What was the last thing you wrote down to make sure that you would not forget it? Among the central things in God’s plans is your blamelessness.
What was the last thing that you gave up sleep for? The Son of God gave up himself to death that you might be above reproach.
Our lives are filled with important things, only let us not forget God’s priority is our reconciliation to him in holiness!
