Good morning!

Text:  Ephesians 2;  2 Kings 23-24

The grim reality for humans is that despite being born as living beings, we are all born spiritually “dead.”  And our life in the flesh is destined to end in physical death.  This is all because of human sin, as the Bible teaches us.  But… but…

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved…  (Ephesians 2:4-5)

“But God” are the best words we can ever hear.  For those who are in Christ, who have put their trust in Jesus, this incredible truth defines us.  Our merciful God , motivated by amazing love for us, has made us alive.  Just like Jesus, who died and was then raised from the dead, we are alive.  And forgiven and saved from God’s wrath to come.  Alive with new life.  Forever alive.   Amazing grace!

in Him, Mike
