A Thought - It is always a kick to see how fast a newly married couple changes their Facebook Relationship Status to married. The status change is a right of passage in 21st Century America. Did you know that we each have a relationship status with God? According to Romans 5:10, our relationship status before our salvation is "enemy." Yes, we were enemies of God. Great News! When we placed our faith in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God changed our relationship status immediately from "enemy" to "beloved." In other words, through salvation, we are reconciled with God and brought into a loving relationship.
