Only the Lamb of God can make us blameless.

2 Peter 3:14, American Standard Version (ASV)
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for these things, give diligence that ye may be found in peace, without spot and blameless in his sight.
Proverbs 28:10, New King James Version (NKJV)
10 Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way, He himself will fall into his own pit; But the blameless will inherit good.
Ephesians 1:4 (NKJV)
just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
Jude 1:24, (ASV)
24 Now unto him that is able to guard you from stumbling, and to set you before the presence of his glory without blemish in exceeding joy,
Acts 24:16, (NKJV)
16 This being so, I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men.
2 Samuel 22:31-33, (ASV)
31 As for God, his way is perfect: The word of Jehovah is tried; He is a shield unto all them that take refuge in him. 32 For who is God, save Jehovah? And who is a rock, save our God? 33 God is my strong fortress; And he guideth the perfect in his way.
Psalm 18:30-32, English Standard Version (ESV)
30 This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. 31 For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God?— 32 the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless
Proverbs 14:9, (NKJV)
Fools mock at sin, But among the upright there is favor.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21, (NKJV)
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Luke 11:4, (NKJV)
And forgive us our sins, For we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.”
John 1:29, (ESV)
29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
John 8:12, (NKJV)
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Romans 6:12-23, (ASV)
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof: 13 neither present your members unto sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves unto God, as alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under law, but under grace. 15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? God forbid.
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye present yourselves as servants unto obedience, his servants ye are whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God, that, whereas ye were servants of sin, ye became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching where unto ye were delivered; 18 and being made free from sin, ye became servants of righteousness. 19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness unto sanctification. 20 For when ye were servants of sin, ye were free in regard of righteousness. 21 What fruit then had ye at that time in the things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 22 But now being made free from sin and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

My Comments: The only way we may be blameless in the sight of God is to become His children and accept the gift of grace from Jesus who died to take our sin upon Himself. Then with His help we continue to give diligence to stay away from the things our flesh lust after. Each person has different things they have fed throughout their lives (different sins). For some it is pornography, sex outside of marriage (man and women is the only marriage sanctioned by God), stealing, lying. Even young people sin because none are born innocent but with the sin nature that came because of the fall of Adam and Eve our fore parents.

Young people may talk back to their parents, sneak out of the house, smoke when the rule of the house in not to smoke, promiscuity, cheat or any number of things the same as adults. Jesus gives us the strength, if we turn to Him, steep ourselves in His word and give our selves to Him, to reject temptations. His strength helps us be blameless and when we do stumble or fall we turn quickly to Him and confess our sin and continue to follow Him. His word is very definite on taking up our cross and following Him.

We will be tempted. We will be drawn to the sin we were drawn to before we were born again in Jesus Christ. But God gave us a way out from giving into our sin nature. We will war with our sin nature but God who is Sovereign, who created the world will give us the strength to overcome temptations. Steeping ourselves in His Word, calling on Him when tempted, talking to Him often or continually so nothing else has a chance to enter in, being in a constant walk with Him (being careful what we watch, read, sing, write or say and even think). He is our strength, our strong tower, He shelters us from the storms, raises us up from the muck and mire. We will go through trials yet the difference will be, He will be there with us to bring us through them and through these times we will be refined and grow in His grace. The Lamb of God makes us blameless so we may one day stand before the Throne of God and be called Children of God.

The Lamb of God took away our sin and if we accept His gift, He gives us strength to reject the lusts of the flesh or desires that separate us from Abba Father. If we choose to live forever we must accept the free gift of eternal life from our Lord God. He will present us blameless before the Father. When we accept Jesus as our Savior and believe on Him then He has dominion over our sin natures as we let Him. If we follow Him we walk in the light of life and our sins are forgiven as we forgive others and how can we not forgive? We have been given the gift of eternal life and forgiven our sin, What a joy! We are reconciled to the Father through the Son and we become God’s ambassadors. We no longer mock sin or those who follow God. God becomes our rock, refuge and He equips us through His Holy Spirit with strength and makes our way blameless.

His way is perfect, true and sure. He is a fortress, shield and our guide and will guard us from stumbling if we listen to Him and follow Him. This message was primarily to the Believers among you yet for those who do not yet believe I encourage you to read and study the Word of God and open up your hearts to His truths so you may partake in the Sacrifice of the Lamb of God who died to take away your sin as well. He waits for you to call on Him. He loves you very much and He proved it when He willingly came down from Heaven and became a man and willingly went to the Cross for your sin and the sin of the whole world. I pray you take that step of faith and trust the Word of God and accept Jesus as your Savior.

Abba, may those who are Yours renew their faith and may they trust You to lead them out of the ways of the evil one. May those who are seeking have their eyes opened to Your truths and the grace You have given through Your Son Jesus the Messiah, the perfect Lamb of God. Who was the only one who could or can rescue us from sin.

Fill our cup Lord with Your life and give us Your heart that we will reject sin. Help us to be truly Your servants and help us to serve others in Your name. There is none but You Jesus the Lamb of God, who can and will and has saved us from sin because You became sin for us on the Cross. Because of You Jesus, we can stand before the Abba Father who loves us so much He sent You, His Son, to save us from sin. Thank You for Your sacrifice. Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit when You rose to Heaven.

Holy Spirit, Holy Wind, Comforter thank Your for all You do daily for us. Thank You for teaching us, guiding us and filling us with the Words of wisdom and truth that we may be light in a dark world and salt in a world that has lost it's salt. Help us to always show the Love of Jesus wherever we go. Fill our hearts with true faith and our mouths with pure truth and cast out all fear from our minds.
In Jesus name, in union with the Holy Spirit, I pray. Amen.
