Scripture of the Day - January 21, 2012

Ephesians 2:3 we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

What a wonderful God! What a God of mercy and love! How can people question the goodness of God?! They say if God is so good then why is all this heartache and pain in the world? Honey, we brought it on ourselves when we sinned against Him. But in spite of that, in spite of the fact that we were dead in sin, God loved us enough to give us the gift of life!! He brought us back to life just as He brought the body of Jesus back to life. We are quickened, made alive, with Christ! And as we are made alive with Christ we are to put on the mind of Christ... think like Christ, follow His example. Our old ways are behind us we follow after Christ now.
