Who You Used To Be

Ephesians 2:1-5
As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 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.

What you were…

“The seed of every sin is inside of every human heart.” -John Owen

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Those who think too lightly of the Savior do so because they think too lightly of sin. You show me a man who has felt the noose of God‘s judgment around his neck and been delivered from it, and that is a man who will weep for joy at the pardon he has received and then he will hate the evil he has been forgiven of. -C.H. Spurgeon
