What's Yours???

Ephesians 2:1-10
1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 4But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved— 6and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

We ALL have a testimony!
If you briefly wrote it on a cardboard, what would it say?
Mine would say:
Before: Prideful, Fornicator, Popularity-seeker
Now: Humbly striving to deny myself, pick up my cross daily, & follow Jesus!
Praise God for His Amazing Grace!
And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, "Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her."And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus stood up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more." John 8:7-11

Holler - He is so great...such security! Ephesians is definitely refreshing. I've been going through Galatians and writing down what I seem to understand. Last night it was chapter 3 and it was one in the morning and I fell asleep...that stuff is deep! And so is Ephesians, but a different kind of deep. :)
