Monday Meditations

And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

~ Colossians 2:13-14

These two verses are great to meditate on in regards to preaching the gospel to ourselves daily. That sounds rather strange, but it is something important to do, lest we forget what our Lord Jesus Christ did for us. We were completely dead in our sin, blinded by the lies of satan and our own depraved minds. Jesus took the task of raising our souls from death when He died on the cross for us, giving us life. He has taken away the sin that shouted our guilt before a Holy God, and has nailed it to the cross. Now, we who beleive in Christ, are made innocent and free!

Today, I am thanking God for His indelible grace, through Christ! How about you?
