The Living Dead

  • You were made alive when you were dead in transgressions and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the powers of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience; among whom we also all once lived in the lust of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)" Ephesians 2:1'5 WEB.

    It was another night at another party. We were always playing a gig somewhere in the band I was in. We played music about six nights a week, and sometimes twice a day on the weekends. At first, it was a lot of fun, but eventually, it became just another job filled with late hours and heavy equipment.

    We often had the same people who would come to hear us when we were in the area. Eventually, I knew every couple on the dance floor and what song they would dance to. Though I was always on stage and looked like the life of the party, I felt pretty empty inside. Something was missing in my life.

    One night, while playing music at a party, the Holy Spirit came into the bar and changed my life in a flash. In the middle of playing a song, and without missing a chord, my priorities were transformed. He suddenly gave me a third-person view of my current life. I saw myself playing on stage from a distance. Then He asked me, "Do you want this, or what I have for you?" I instantly knew it was time to make a change.

    I had become the living dead. I finished the set, put up my bass, went home and into my bedroom, laid on the floor, and poured my heart out to God. That was a Saturday night, and He was calling me. The next morning, I got up and went to a nearby church. I have never been the same. I found what was missing, or more accurately, He found me. I once was lost, but now I am found.

    You can live while dead and empty inside, but you don't have to. Jesus resurrected the dead, and He gave them life eternal. He can rekindle the spirit inside of you and relight that fire that has gone out. It's never too late to get a fresh start and be revived. The joy and the fire can be restored, and the emptiness can be filled. You don't have to be the living dead.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for taking care of me and bringing me this far. Please forgive me of my sins, give me a clear vision, and help me become the person that You created me to be. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.' (John 5:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
