Day 9 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

“​Remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” – Ephesians 2:12-13

Lord, as Gentiles we were not in a good state.We did not have the advantages of Your people the Jews. We were Christless, citizenshipless, covenantless, hopeless, and godless in this brutal and dark world. You did not leave us in that sad state of affairs. We who were afar off are now made near. How was that made possible? The blood of Jesus Christ. That which kept us from God was our sin. My sin kept me in a position of being  far off. The impediment, the road block, has been removed. Now I am no longer separated from Christ. He is my Messiah too. I am now a citizen of heaven. I partake of the New Covenant were Jew and Gentile are one body in Christ. I am filled with hope and I have drawn near to God as His dear Child. All because of the blood of Jesus Christ spilt out on that tree. Positionally it can’t get any better than this and it is all because of the cross. All praise be to God the Father through the Holy Spirit in the Name of the Son. Amen
