Ephesians 2:1-10New International Version (NIV)
Made Alive in Christ
2 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
I can’t tell you where I got this scripture but it landed on the Blog board so it was ordered. I have said before I write these blogs all through the Holy spirit in hopes that someone who needed a word would receive it. I am a Woman Of God spreading the good news. Amen!
Verses 1-3 We were dead in our transgressions ( times we offended God, Ourselves , and others) and sins, The way we use to live, our negative way of thinking falling in line with things that we knew weren’t right. It’s not okay to talk behind some ones back, it’s not ok to speak negatively, only building words should come from your mouth (Ephesians 4:29), Destruction of your own character, abuse, there not of God. I’m trying to pick better ways of saying these words but it is what it is. Scripture says when we follow the ruler of the kingdom of the air ( The Enemy) we are dead in our transgressions. We have all been there (Now Paul said that ,and I am in Agreement, that I have lived the disobedient life also) and at that time we were by nature objected to the wrath of God, we had not found and followed Christ yet.
Verses 4-10 Goes on to tell us that it is because God loves us so greatly he showed us mercy through Jesus Christ, even when our souls were dead. it is by grace we were saved. Through Christ we received riches of the father’s grace and kindness. but we should know his grace is not something we did ourselves we can’t boast about it, the grace is the gift of God (Oil, anointing, Holy Spirit) , given by faith in Christ. Amen! we are workers created in Jesus Christ (washed in the blood of Jesus) to do Good work that God prepared in advance for us to do.
Wow! Do you believe that the special thing you do is a Gift from God. well it is. created all for his purpose to bless you bountiful with his grace, all you have to do is remember who Gave it to you, Yes! the Father, and who sacrificed their life so you could have it. Amen! Jesus Christ.
I give all the praises to God to be writing, I have Loved writing since I was a little girl, I have Loved Jesus since then also, I hadn’t written steady since I was in high school. Well all praises to the most High God, sovereign God, I am writing everyday, and Thanks to God I am getting better at it everyday. What I use to stumble on, the God in me Flows in writing Gods words and my testimony, I usually say my holy spirit is smarter than I and a way better at spelling too.
Have you ever done the thing that you love the most and you feel adrenaline through your body, you have chills in your bones like your about to bust, it’s so beautiful to you that you almost have tears in your eyes. That’s it, that’s your holy spirit that God gave you. With some appreciation, respect, and discipline. You will soar in It, and God will bless you in it. You will prosper because it is something you were meant to do, that’s the power of God.
Oh! you say Wilhelmina, what about people who already went through it, and didn’t succeed? I say their story is not your story, the only thing stopping you, is you believing that God is waiting on you to move in you. You just have to have faith that you will achieve. It might not be tomorrow, and it might not even be in a couple of years but when your skills are sharp and your ready you will soar patience and faith.
You may even ask do I really believe that? My answer stay tuned as Christ Grows in me, and the Holy Spirit sharpens my sword. with God going ahead of me and lighting my path there is no room for failure, Eyes on God.
If there is anyone out there looking for the Lord, he has been waiting for you, Confess with your mouth and your heart that Jesus died for your sins, that Jesus is the Son Of The Living God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 -13, get yourself in a bible based church and start your fellowship with the one who loves you.
Be Blessed everyone until next time
