BDBD is Colossians 1:21-28

  Paul is writing to all with the words, “Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your mind.” (21) Jesus taught that sin starts in the heart. The human heart is the mind and will. From these comes actions, whether good or evil. I was so alienated too.
   Thanks be to God. Jesus made it possible to be reconnected with him (22). Without Jesus being in me and with me I would have given up many times. Jesus gives me hope (23).
   Jesus gives me hope when sometimes there seems to be no hope. He helps me focus on the present. He helps me not regret the past nor worry about the future. He shows me wonders in the moment. He helps me to be thankful. Jesus is the one I proclaim (28).
