Colossians 2:13-15 (NIV)
13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Lord, You came to me where I was when I was still a sinner. You sought me out and You led me out of my self-centeredness. You called me Your own. You made me alive through Your love and forgiveness. You paid the price for my sins. You canceled my debt and released me from the penalty of eternal Hell. How can I do anything but praise You and serve You? My life is Yours and I thank You. Amen.
