Choose Your Side

“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!
