Alive Together

Today's reading: Colossians 2:8-15

Two verses from our passage today spoke loudly to my heart.

"And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross" (vs. 13-14).

I've been a Christ-follower for many, many years, so I know well and with certainty what Paul writes in verses 14-15. But because I've been a believer for a long time, I can tend to take what I know for granted. So as I took in Paul's message to the church at Colossae today, my heart was thankful for this passage and how it is filled with reminders of who God is and what He has done out of His great love for us.

How often do you take time to ponder the gift of your salvation and being alive in Christ? Why is this important? I invite you to join me today in telling God that you remember and are thankful for His great love. Tami

Tami, I am guilty for taking the gift of salvation,all my past sins were forgiven when I became a Christ-follower for many years, I too have taken it granted!

Why is this important to remember,that was the day I was alive in Christ, sins were forgiven and pondering it today, makes me praise the Lord for His amazing love for me.
Thank You, Jesus for Your great love for me even when I was sinner! May I desire to remember what You have done for me in the past.To know that I will be with You forever makes me rejoice in my salvation and it was made possible by You, Lord Jesus!
