Ephesians 2:1-3

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 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, 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.
Ephesians 2:1-3

Without Jesus, people can only live by the rules of a cursed world. Ruled by the lust of their flesh and a depraved mind, they are under the authority of Satan. They are deserving of God's wrath. Without Jesus, the outlook is bleak and nothing will satisfy them -- not a positive self-image, nor wealth, nor power. Nothing will ever be enough.

We must never forget what we have been saved from. Apart from Christ, we were headed for eternal punishment. Now, alive in Him, we will enjoy an eternity in the presence of our Lord. Apart from Christ, we were cursed to an empty, unsatisfying life. Now, in Him, we can walk by the power of the Holy Spirit and have a life filled with love, joy, and peace.

Alive in Christ,

Pastor Rod Harris
