Good Morning Hearers!
Ephesians 2:1-3 – And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the [a]course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
Man apart from God is:
Under Satan’s authority
Under the dominion of an unrenewed mind
He is also:
Deprived and Doomed
This world is full of lost humanity – and you and I need to assume nothing. Don’t assume because they go to church that they necessarily have a relationship with the Lord. They can be there out of religious obligation, or because they are looking for answers. They can put on the face without having the heart.
Don’t assume that because they don’t go to church that they did not have a relationship with the Lord at one time. They could be disillusioned as to what the Lord requires of them because no one has ever told them about the love of God. They might have shared with them the rules and regulations of the church and what is expected, but never introduced them to the Lord. That makes them fall into the category of lost humanity:
Proclaiming, Revealing and Restoring...Until All Have Heard.
