Strengthened 2b Blameless

“…May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones…” 1 Thes 3:13 NIV, italics and emphasis mine


Why does one need to be strengthened (other translation say established) to be blameless (innocent, spotless, untarnished)? .it is because we need God’s strength not to repay evil for evil, not to take a short-cut which can solve problems but taint ones heart. We need God’s strength to remain pure in heart and mind when everything around us is corrupted.


Paul is praying for the saints, not sinners, in Thessalonica that God will strengthen, empower and establish their hearts so that they have the power to say no to anything that will put blame (blemish, spot, guile) in their hearts, I pray the same to everyone today…may you have courage to say NO to the evil one and YES to the Holy Spirit, every time.
