Alive in Christ♥

Standard

♥ As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 
2
 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. 
3
 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. 
4
 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 
5
 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 
6
 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 
7
 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 
8
For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the
gift of God 
9
 not by works, so that no one can boast. 
10
 For we are God’s handiwork,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,

which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Eternal Commitment♥

Standard

Freeway 5 to San Diego 6: AM

But now that you have been set free from sin and become slaves to God, you have the consequence of a holy life, and the outcome is eternal life.
The wages that sin pays are death, but God’s gift is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.♥

Spring flowers

Standard

We have passed a blessed 1/4 of the year

11Look! The winter is past.
      The rain is over and gone.
    12Blossoms appear in the land.
      The time of the songbird has arrived.
      The cooing of the mourning dove is heard in our land.
    13The green figs ripen.
      The grapevines bloom and give off a fragrance.
   Get up, my true love, my beautiful one, and come with me.

Song of Solomon 2:11-13
