Ephesians 2:1-2 (NLT)

Made Alive with Christ

1 Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. 2 You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God.


The righteous path is one of life and vitality; it is the joyous path. This is the path of living without regrets.

This is the path of redemption even when we have done wrong. It is the path of personal inventory and making amends to those we have damaged along the pathway. It is the path of self-forgiveness and “others” forgiveness.

Thank you, Jesus!



  1. 2:2 Greek obeying the commander of the power of the air.
