Every Christian knows that God sees them. But not every believer knows HOW God sees them. In other words, what does God see when He looks at you? Does it make you uncomfortable to think about how God sees you? If so, you probably don’t know how He sees you.
Thankfully, the Bible tells us how God sees you if Jesus is your Lord and Savior. Colossians 1:22 says, “Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.”
The most important thing you can see is seeing how God sees you. And because of Jesus’ sacrificial death and your trust in Him, He sees you as holy, blameless, and without fault. That may be hard to wrap your head around because you know that even as a Christian you still mess up. But God isn’t looking at your faults, He’s looking at the perfection of Jesus Christ that covers you like a robe.
If we don’t understand how God sees us, then we expect the worst and live an inward life of guilt and shame and an outward life of self-righteousness. We try to prove ourselves to God and the world around us by our good deeds, while inwardly we’re getting beat up by the devil because of our misdeeds.
When you see how God sees you, then you can quit trying to become what you already are; holy, blameless, and without fault. And when you quit striving in your own self-effort you’re more available to partner with God so that His power can flow in you and through you to not only change your own life, but the lives of those around you.
