Colossians 1:13-14 NASB "For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."I had put in a transfer from one department to another and waiting for the paperwork seemed to go on forever! Today's verses speak to us about being transferred from darkness into the Light because of what Christ did on the Cross, and in that transfer comes the forgiveness of sins! It was like starting over, a new beginning, an opportunity for change. When the transfer went through, I was refreshed to begin again, as if I was born again! The old job left me feeling stagnant, just going through the motions where the new position allowed me to be productive again. In life, we may find ourselves so deep in sin, so deep in just going through the motions, so deep in not really living but existing, that we need to make a transfer and the best transfer of life comes to us through the work of the Cross. Spend time this week at the foot of the Cross and see the transfer available to us through Jesus Christ! BTW, the only paperwork needed is time in God's Word! peace, tom
