“Father, before I received Christ I was Your enemy. I was on the wrong side in the war between Satan and You. I was born with a fallen nature, born into the wrong kingdom as part of the opposition. And unwittingly, when I knew enough to choose, I repeatedly chose for sin and against You! Unknowingly I signed on with the rebel prince-the god of this world, the prince of the power of the air. Colossians 1:21; Romans 5:10” 31 Days of Power by Ruth Myers, page 100.
This paragraph struck me in a way I had never thought about my human nature before. The inclination toward sin was with me from my first day on earth. I was given a choice to reject that sin nature and join God’s army.
Thank You Lord, for giving us a choice. We weren’t doomed to a life of greed and selfishness. You gave us a better way, through adoption into Your family. Ephesians 2:19.
That’s Amazing Grace!
