_ 101714 Death to Life

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and worthy of our praise. The following scriptures say it all.

Today’s Prayer

Father, help us to remember that even in the depths of our despair, You are there. Help us remember to rejoice and praise You even then, believing that there is a purpose in everything that happens. Give us the strength to turn our lives over completely to You and to mean it, not dictating answers to our prayers, but being willing to listen and to sincerely put You in charge of our lives. Give us courage to speak honestly in love, not shying away from reality, or lacking the courage to face the painful. Help us to know that You are our only real security and that You will not fail us. Guide us in the paths that we should walk, and we will be careful to give you all honor and glory. In Jesus’ name we pray and give thanks, Amen.

Let’s eat.

From Death to Life

In Death

Ephesians 2:1-3

Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else.

The Sinner’s State; Life Provided

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

God’s Free Gift; Life Imparted

John 3:35-36

The Father loves his Son and has put everything into his hands. And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.”

Faith’s Reception; From Death to Life

John 5:20-24

For the Father loves the Son and shows him everything he is doing. In fact, the Father will show him how to do even greater works than healing this man. Then you will truly be astonished. For just as the Father gives life to those he raises from the dead, so the Son gives life to anyone he wants. In addition, the Father judges no one. Instead, he has given the Son absolute authority to judge, so that everyone will honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son is certainly not honoring the Father who sent him. I tell you the truth; those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.
