AUGUST 26 – ALIVE

8/26 Colossians 2:13-15
You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ. He forgave all our sins. He canceled the record that contained the charges against us. He took it and destroyed it by nailing it to Christ’s cross. In this way, God disarmed the evil rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross of Christ.
ALIVE
The cross event displayed God’s wonderful work in Christ. He forgave my sin. He brought me into His family. He made me and us alive in Christ. His forgiveness of my sin, a free gift from the Father, gives me and us access to Him through Christ. Jesus death, burial and resurrection destroyed the ability of evil to control me for I have been born again. Have you asked Jesus into your heart?
