In Ephesians 5:19-20 (Mirror Bible) Paul is teaching us, especially when we aren't overflowing with blessing and abundance, to get our praise on and worship with power! Verse 19 says to "Speak psalms to one another; burst out in spontaneous celebration songs and spirit inspired resonance. In your heart do not let the music stop; continue to touch the Lord with whispers of worship." verse 20 goes on with this theme, saying "Because you are identified in the name of Jesus Christ, you can afford to always overflow in gratitude to the Father, in spite of everything that happens to you. You are not under circumstances but above circumstances because you are in Him!" We are not grateful FOR everything, but in spite of everything! Even in darkest of times, we must understand this huge power of worship to give our lives meaning and purpose. Worshipping Yehweh even while in despair is a way to defy the adversary and to shout our declaration of value of the good-the best-in life: the LORD! There is no more worthy purpose to praise: no more worthy time for it than NOW!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
