Though we were spiritually dead because of the things we did against God, he gave us new life with Christ. You have been saved by God’s grace. [Ephesians 2:5 NCV]
I recently had coffee with an old friend and we discussed the idea of being dead in sin and whether such a person could be immortal. My thinking is that such a person has nothing in them that can survive death. Yet some think that everyone is born immortal and not really spiritually dead.
On the flipside, I love how this verse speaks of a new life with Christ. It reminds me of the day that Jesus came into my life. In a tangible way he made me a different person. He gave me a new heart and a new perspective. This is the gospel. Those who were spiritually dead become alive in God.
All that I can say Lord is thanks. For a life that does not end when I die.
