08/08 Ephesians 1:11-13
Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan. 12 God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God. 13 And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.
We are given the Holy Spirit of God as the first part of our inheritance in Christ. We are filled with the Spirit of God as we live in Christ. Father today help me to live for you. Speak to my sinfulness and pull me out of the herd of evil doers. I need you Lord Jesus so that I might be equipped and ready to deal with sin in my life. Forgive me Lord, today mark me with your forgiveness.
