Grace for you today !
Jesus Your Eternal Excellence!
“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”
Ephesians 2:1, 4-5 NIV
As I mentioned yesterday, I was a very religious person, living my life in sin. I had my perfect attendance in the church, was very prompt in confession of sins and carried out penance faithfully. All these continued until the day Jesus stepped into my life when the whole equation of my life totally changed. Religion gave way to reality & relationship with God! The desire to sin just left me & every word of the above verse got completely fulfilled in my life. I am made alive with Christ!
It is the spirit of man that alone can commune with God. Sadly , sin terminates the communion of man with God. That is why it is written “ you were dead in transgressions and sins” . What was dead was the spirit of man even though man continues to live in his body, using his soul. This “dead life“ is the reason for all self centeredness, fear , sorrow, depression hopelessness and so on.
But when we receive Jesus in our heart , our spirit is “made alive” , restoring the sweet communion with God & making us a New Creation !
The blood of Jesus washes away all our sins and transgressions and makes us forever righteous, never to die , forever connected with God, living out the life of God , which is in our spirit. Hallelujah! Amen 🙏
