The Clock and The Calendar

 

This week I have been reading the Book of Ephesians. In chapter 2, Paul paints with his words an incredible image of Christ and the riches we have in Him , and I never get tired of reading them.

 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,  in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.  All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,  made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved.  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,  in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

-Ephesians 2: 1-7 (NIV)

There are so many riches in these verses, but God has a way of bringing bringing things to light through a number of means. At least He does this in my life! As I attended a Bible Study this week, a lovely woman spoke up and shared about Jesus lifting her out of the pit, with excitement. I affirmed He did likewise for me.
