It’s my birthday today…as I dwelt on Colossians, Paul’s words in 2:13 were pertinent:

And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him [Christ], having forgiven us all our trespasses.

I am so thankful, on my birthday, not only for my physical life, but more so for my eternal life! God “made me alive” TWICE! But, praise His holy name, I will only die ONCE! Again, we see Paul preaching the Gospel to BELIEVERS…the Gospel of God’s overwhelming grace, His immeasurable power, His loving initiative, and HIS sufficient work–NOT OURS! GOD made US alive, we didn’t make ourselves alive. As much as I had NOTHING to do with my physical birth, I had nothing to do with my spiritual birth. May we never stop preaching that to our own hearts!

He is glorious.
