The nature of human life described by Paul in the book of Ephesians often does not match our perceived realities. In this podcast episode, continuing our look at the book of Ephesians, JB Shreve looks at the alternate lifestyles and realities for humans. God designed us to live in a certain way. Our response to Him determines whether we live like the animals of this world or the children of light in the Kingdom of God that He designed us to be.
Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. Ephesians 2:1-3 (NLT)
You lived in this world without God and without hope. But now you have been united with Christ Jesus. Once you were far away from God, but now you have been brought near to him through the blood of Christ. Ephesians 2:12-13 (NLT)
