It’s a chapter to be read with keen awareness and devoted appreciation.
Oh, how I would love to read it aloud to you with all the passion and thankfulness that washes over me.
I paraphrased the first two verses.
Would you like to see them?
Ephesians 1: 1 I used to be dead because of my sins and acts of disobedience. 2 I walked in the ways of the world and obeyed the Ruler of the Powers of the Air, who is still at work among the disobedient. original source
The chapter goes on to say we all used to live this way; this natural, old nature with which we were born BUT GOD in His mercy and grace came and offered us more than just this natural sin-cursed life. He offered us through The Messiah Yeshua deliverance from sin, death, hell, and the grave.
Not many in comparison have said yes.
It’s been a quiet Sunday here at our lovely abode; these PJs sure are comfy.
