Five little letters that so vividly describe our spiritual state.
They have slapped me in the face this morning. A L I V E.
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved.... Eph.2:4
The enemy would like to tell us that we are ordinary- nothing special- just the run of the mill. He would lead you to believe that you would be the last chosen in the kickball game of life and would get quietly shoved to the "water boy" stand
as soon as you managed to make it to the dug out.
I hate to infringe upon the negativity that has seeped into your brain - but do want to tell you this- you are alive in Christ. "Death" had your name on it's steno pad, your mobile number, followed your twitter updates, had a friend request into you on Facebook- but your redeemer Jesus stepped in and paid your price.
You ARE chosen.
You ARE his redeemed
You are his first choice
You always catch his eye when you speak HIS name.
Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.
Set God-sized goals.
Pursue God-ordained passions.- Mark Batterson
Don't doubt yourself today. The creator of the universe is in love with you.
You are ALIVE in Christ.
Take a leap of faith! It's going to be a Tuesday to remember.
