The Apostle Paul reflects regarding your past, “Although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death”. None of us deserved to be reconciled to God. No matter how good you were, you failed to live up to the standard that God set for you. But Jesus did this, “in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach” (Col 1:21-22). Wow, what love God has for you!
