Who’s Really Missing Out? — Each of us has a measure of grace that allows us to accomplish the great things God wants to do though us, as described within the Ephesians 3:16-20 prayer. However, we are to carefully determine what pleases the Lord, because that IS our primary purpose and means to fellowship with God. Through Jesus, we have been given the means to throw off our old, corrupt nature and be renovated in our thoughts, attitudes, and actions to be more and more like God. We are to let repentance be a precursor to freedom and goodness in our lives, as we were never meant to dwell in condemnation and shame of defeat.
