Read Colossians 2

Colossians 2: 13-15
13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.(NIV)

We are alive with Christ, but how many of us truly know what that means? In the second chapter of Colossians, we learn that it means that we have moved zip codes. Before we accepted Christís free gift of salvation, we resides with death. Death is a lousy roommate. He always invites over unwanted guess like worry, uncertainty, fear, anger, and unforgiveness. Death also invites over his pals guilt and condemnation to constantly place you on trial and remind you of all or your sins and shortcomings. Jesus, however, has offered us a way to break our rental agreement with death and move to life. Now we are seated with him in heavenly places. We have the Holy Spirit as a seal to remind us that we have a new home and are a part of a new family. He brings us the fruit of the Spirit to hang out with. We should thank Jesus every day that we are new creatures and have a new life in him. When death and his pals try to gain entrance into our soul, we can now declare with certainty that we are dead to them and can choose life instead.

Thought for the day: Have you made the move from death to life? If no, accept Christ as your personal savior today!
