But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the 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 2:4-5
“You were dead,” the Apostle Paul writes to the Ephesian church. Not sick, or list, or misguided. Dead, but like zombies, still walking around following the cravings of the flesh. But. God made us alive again in Christ.
