Pristine Grace

Can't Get Any More Accepted!

Can't Get Any More Accepted!

     The believer (one who, by God-given faith, believes the gospel of God's free and sovereign grace) is "accepted in the Beloved (in Christ)" - Eph 1:6. They cannot get any MORE accepted by anything they do or don't do. The accomplished death of Christ ensures constant acceptance to God. God's word says, "As He is, so are we in this world". This is sovereign grace. 

     We don't start in the Spirit and lean on the flesh to finish. Nobody gets progressively more acceptable by fulfilling conditions or jumping through hoops along the way towards some final, but unfinished salvation. Beware of anything that sounds like that. Run from it, because it's a lie of the devil.
