4-12 Application for Mar 31, 2019 :: Ephesians 2:1-3

==

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience- among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.

Ephesians 2:1-3

===

This is a dark verse

Dead
Tresspasses and sins
Following the wrong prince
Passions of our flesh
Children of Wrath

So why is it a happy verse for Christians?

Because of one word: “were”

None of these things are true any more.

We are following God.
We are alive.
We are sons of obedience
We are children of God.

Thank God for this.
