Devotion: WAS...

 

April 18, 2018

 SCRIPTURE:

"And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. . ."  Ephesians 2:1-2 KJV

 

A MOMENT TO REFLECT:

'Was' is a word that conveys many sentiments and thoughts. Most often we view our lives through what was; meaning there is regret, or disappointment. Paul uses 'was' in a different way; a different context. 'Was' is the status of our lives before Christ, according to the Apostle. We may have been, but are not any longer. Whatever 'was', was, and therefore, cannot continue to be. When we are in Christ we begin again. We should purpose to let go of what used to be of our old lives and the lives of others. Biblical Christians don't hold on to their sinful practices or memories. Neither do they remember the unconverted lives of those who are new in Christ. Living in Christ, is living for Christ. It is living a new man/woman, by His grace. Don't look back.  When we accept Christ we are new individuals. So, let it go - all of it! 

SPIRIT OF PROPHECY COMMENT:

As God raised Christ from the dead, that He might bring life and immortality to light through the gospel, and thus save His people from their sins, so Christ has raised fallen human beings from spiritual death, quickening them with His life, filling their hearts with hope and joy (Manuscript 89, 1903). 6BC 1115.13 


Dear Friends of the New Leaf Prophecy/Doctrinal Learning Center:

We are excited to introduce you to a video series that will inform you of 'how' error came into the Christian church and 'why' the Reformation occurred. More compelling, the elements which caused both remain with us today. 

Five videos are provided to get you started in this awesome series.
