Blameless and Innocent

There are some specific benefits to persistent holiness. Primarily, in the eyes of the Lord you will be blameless and innocent. Who wouldn’t want that? This is essentially the purpose behind the imperative in Philippians 2:14. This is the motivation for doing all things without grumbling and disputing, and for working out our salvation in all spheres of life. The rewarding result is being blameless (meaning no glaring fault can be found in us) and innocent (meaning our heart is free from guilt). Only unity in the body based on the humble example of Christ will yield the fruit of a congregation faultless before God, and comfortable with their own conscience.
