Would you please...
Please read the following very slowly; think through each word and each phrase. Do not merely glance through it. Then, if you would, please commit to spend 10 minutes reflecting on the passage. Try to have ten solid minutes of sustained thought on the passage. Do whatever is necessary to create an environment where this can be done without interuption. See if God will not bless the time you have put in. See if God will not use these verses to richly bless you and abundantly magnify Himself. See if it is even possible to be a Christian and spend time (a mere 10 minutes!) meditating on this truth and not have a truly worshipful experience.
were dead in your trespasses, and sins,
in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world,
according to the prince of the power of the air,
of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh,
indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind,
and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
In Christ alone,
