"This includes you, who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body" - Colossians 1:21-22a

Outside of Christ, our evil thoughts and actions actually make us God's enemies.

I can never again be God's enemy because Christ has reconciled us once and for all through his death on the Cross. However, when I succumb to evil thoughts or actions I BEHAVE and LIVE as if I am God's enemy. That is really sobering.

Lord, thank you for dying for me when I was your enemy. Who does that? I want to live as your friend. By your grace, I renew my commitment to take every thought captive to obeying Christ. Amen.
