Into His Presence

He has reconciled you to Himself 
through the death of Christ. 
As a result, He has brought you into 
His own presence-- 
you are holy and blameless 
as you stand before Him without a single fault.
But you must continue 
to believe this truth and stand firmly in it
This is the secret: Christ lives in you. 
Colossians 1
These truths are unfathomable.
Because of Christ's death, 
Father has ushered us into His presence.
We are holy and blameless in His sight.
Not a fault, in Christ.
Colossians says that we must believe this truth
and stand firmly on it if we are to continue.
Christ in me, the hope of glory.
All day long. Every second of my life.
I am in His presence
and He lives in me.

Father, would this truth go deep into my spirit today.
"Because the sinless Savior died,
my sinful soul is counted free.
For God the just is satisfied
to look at Him and pardon me."
Holy and blameless that I may live
to bring Him glory and honor.
Only through the life that lives in me.
Your presence, Lord, is my greatest gift for this day.
