My apologies in advance if it gets a bit preachy up in here today : )
Ephesians 2: 1(emphasis mine)
As for you, you were dead in your transgression and sins...
Ephesians 2:4 (emphasis mine)
But, because of his great love, 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.
I was reminded of the truth possessed in these two verses yesterday. Before I made the decision to follow Christ I wasn't just broken, messed up, or not quite trying hard enough. I wasn't a good person trying not to do bad things. I wasn't a bad person trying to do good things.
I was dead.
As a doornail.
(whatever a doornail is?)
I just love me a great big but.
But because of Gods love...I have been made alive.
In the words of the great theologian, Taylor Swift, I want to never ever ever..
get over that.
If you've been made alive too, I pray you aren't over the fact either. If you have no idea what I'm talking about but would like to know more, privately email me and I'd love to tell you what God has done for me and answer any questions you might have. jennifer @ jenniferhambrick . com
