Colossians 1:21

Colossians 1:21…”Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.” At one time we only hated God, and could not love Him. But God, who is rich in grace and mercy, set His affection on us. He rescued us and placed us in right standing with Himself. This could only be done through the blood of a perfect sacrifice. Jesus lived a perfect life and died on the cross for our sins. He took on God’s wrath and was raised from the dead, conquering sin and death. We are now no longer alienated from God if we repent and believe in Him. The reward is eternal life, where we’ll be able to finally reciprocate God’s perfect love for us.
