In those days= in the days before you came to believe in Christ Jesus
But now= your unbelief is in the past, you have come to life in Christ
5 simple words can mean so much!
In those days you were living apart from Christ. You were excluded from citizenship among the people of Israel, and you did not know the covenant promises God had made to them. You lived in this world without God and without hope. But now you have been united with Christ Jesus. Once you were far away from God, but now you have been brought near to him through the blood of Christ.
Ephesians 2:12-13 NLT
