Reflect and Be Thankful - Here on Purpose

This coming Sunday our primary scriptures will be from Ephesians chapter 2.  Therefore, let us prepare our hearts and minds for what God has prepared for us.  To do this I want to change things up a bit and start with reading three verses from Ephesians chapter 2.  

Ephesians chapter 2:1-3

After reading, and maybe re-reading, these words I ask that you pause an reflect on your former life.  There was a time when you played by a different set of rules.  When you were not concerned with the things of God.  I DO NOT want you to dwell on these...that life is gone.  I DO want you to notice how God has rescued you.  In doing this practice it becomes very easy to...

Wow! - Brag on God.  Tell God how thankful you are for how he has set your life in a new direction.

Now... - Tell God what's going on in your life.  

How? - Stop talking and start listening to his voice as he speaks to you by his Holy Spirt and his Word.

Utmost for His Highest

What is God saying to you?
What will you do about it?
