Verse: Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.
Insight: Paul reminds the church who they were before committing their lives to Jesus. They were lost and without hope, but now we get to enjoy the benefits of eternal life, not because of what we’ve done but because of what Jesus did for us.
Prayer: Thank you Lord for sending Your Son to die on the cross for me. There is no work or accomplishment that will compare with your loving sacrifice so that I may have abundant life. May I never forget that by grace I am redeemed and justified. Please, help me cherish it and live out the Gospel for your glory. In Jesus Name, Amen.
