“When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us: he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”
I am alive with Christ.
I am forgiven.
My sin is nailed to the cross.
I am clean.
When I think about these truths, I just want to shout and sing to the Lord. To God be the Glory for the great things He has done! Meditating on His forgiveness empowers me to face the challenges of this week with fresh faith trusting that my Father leads me and guides me to accomplish the good works that He has prepared for me to do.
These universal truths are open to you today too! No matter how far away we may feel, the One who Created us is always near. No matter how dirty we feel, the One who Saves us has made us clean in Christ. No matter how burdened we feel, the One who Frees us has canceled the charges against us. No matter how downtrodden we feel, The One who Triumphs has given us victory in Christ. May these truths dwell in our minds and pour out in praise and good works!
