Ephesians 2:4-7 — Conversations with God

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.

Father, this doesn’t explain why You have such great love for me that You would show me mercy, indeed, rich mercy, but I am so grateful.  Making me alive in Christ (spiritually resurrected to new life in connection with His resurrection) and raising me and seating me in the heavenlies in Christ (in connection with His ascension and magesterial enthronement) has been the greatest thing that ever happened to me.  Oh, that You would do this for everyone!

It is incredible to think that not only did You rescue me from Your own well-deserved wrath but You are looking forward to showering me with Your riches because You have such grace and kindness toward me.  I do not deserve it, Father, but I sure want it.  I want to bask in Your love like the warm sun and receive Your healing kindness.  There is no one I’d rather be with than You.  I look forward to ages upon ages of relationship with You.

  1. Hello, I have a question. I recently asked Jesus to forgive my sins and am very happy. I have been studying the bible and found that one of his ten commandments is being broken by christian church’s and christians, because I’m assuming they don’t know or think it’s not important in god’s eye’s. Well it’s number four the keeping the sabbath holy. Since it is very important to keep god’s laws, why do church’s keep Sunday as the Sabbath? Not good! It was changed by man a long time ago by the Roman Church, you can guess who was behind it? Satan!! Of course he’s trying to get as many followers as possible..and what a better way to do it. what do you think? Nancy
