Fire and Desire-Tuesday Truth

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following (the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience Ephesians 2:1-2 esv

Sin has no power over God’s children. Notice here Paul, speaking to Christians, says we were dead in our trespasses and sins. Dead here has the connotation of being totally unresponsive. We used to be totally unresponsive to Jesus; stuck in our evil desires. But not anymore.

Paul says you used to be a child of disobedience, but now you are God’s child. You are new, different, and regenerated. Instead of following the prince of the power if the air (satan) you can walk in the way God has intended you to. The sinful desires that seemingly burn in you have no power; no more than you give them. Be holy. Be free. Enjoy a productive spiritual life!
