S-Ephesians 2:1-3New King James Version (NKJV)
By Grace Through Faith
2 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
O- This was who I was this is still who I am at times but now, I have the Spirit of the righteous ONE living inside of me. He is doing a mighty work in me, for me, and in so doing He is pleased to Bless me and others who know me. The redemptive work is a cleansing of sin and a much needed renewing of my mind.
A-I need to receive this view of myself without Christ, to fully understand my need for Him to Live in this world of sin. My Lusts and Desires Need Not RULE in my flesh any longer as He has made me alive (dead to sin). I am able by His power to receive His Light that casts out the darkness of sin in me. It is in truth the anchor of my faith, knowing I am forgiven, knowing I did not deserve it, believing He is Worthy, and Praising Him with a humbled life surrendered to Him. For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell. I am part of that fullness and indeed for it says in Heaven and on Earth. I am forever given this place of fellowship with Him where sin has been put to death.
P- Father thank you for forgiving me, for showing me that You can keep me from sin. That I am no longer tied to the dead man of sin but that Your life giving blood secured me from the curse of sin and death. I am forever Free to believe and know that You are my redeemer. You alone have set me free from the power of sin. I who was an enemy of Light Your LIGHT am now full of Light Your LIGHT for You have entered into my Darkness and Cast out all my sin and shame. You are my True Father and I am your true Daughter. I Praise You and I Love YOU!
