Ephesians 2:1 (NASB) "And you were dead in your trespasses and sins,"I should have stopped when I seen the sign but I knew there was a good fishing spot on the other side! As the officer approached me, I knew I was guilty even before he said anything. Today's verse speaks about trespasses and sin and how we were dead in them. The key word in the verse is the word "were"! I was guilty of trespassing, I clearly seen the sign before I climbed under the fence. I was let go with a warning and haven't been back since! In life, we have warnings from God's Word about sin and trespassing where we should be. Whether it's falling to temptation or out right doing the wrong thing, God's Word states it clearly! It always comes down to choice - BTW further on in the same chapter as today's reading, we find the key to staying on the right side of trespassing and sin- be sure to check it out! No matter how good it may look on the other side of what we are doing, sin is sin, so chose wisely my friends - peace, tom
