Good afternoon! It’s a new day in the Lord, REJOICE and BE GLAD IN IT!!!
TFTD: You are now alive
Ephesians 2:1; 4-5
1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)
Before Christ you were dead. Before you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior you were a “dead man/woman” walking. And if you have not accepted Christ as your Savior and asked for forgiveness of your sins, then you are currently reading this email as a spiritually dead man/woman. Yes, before Christ we were dead.
Before we accepted Christ, we were slaves to sin. We were held captive by our flesh. We were disobedient and allowed our lust to rule our mind, body, and soul. Destruction was our nature because of sin. We were hell-bound to a death in a fiery grave before Christ. BUT GOD!
God sent His only Son to die for us. Yes, while we were sinners, wallowing in sin, bound for death eternally, God sent His Son to save us all! His grace covered us all. He gave us what we didn’t deserve and that is another chance. That is His love. We don’t deserve to be spared, but God loves us so much that He extended salvation to us all! His mercy is so far-reaching that He reached way down to pick us up and block us from receiving the punishment we do deserve. The moment you accept Christ you are ALIVE!!!
- How many people are happy to be alive today?
- How many people are spiritually dead and ready to start living?
Salvation is FREE. Romans 10:9 (NKJV) says, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
- To all the believers: Stop walking around like you are dead. You are alive so live a life that is pleasing to GOD.
- To all of those who are unsaved and those straddling the fence: Stop walking around living a life with no purpose, no meaning, no life. It’s time to wake up and live!!! You are spiritually dead until you accept Christ. What are you waiting for?
I pray that everyone begins to know their worth. God gave so much so that we may have a life worth living. Start living today!
Have a blessed day.
