And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, Ephesians 2:1
There is a common scene in action or suspense movies. It’s the one where the tide turns and the emotion shifts from despair to a sense of victory. It’s when the star of the film, in a dramatic moment, does the impossible and the villains are doomed. Every believer has had a moment much more dramatic than that. It’s the moment we believed and were made alive in Christ.
We didn’t do this for our self. God did this amazing work through His Grace and Love. We didn’t being our self to life, work off our sin debt, or do anything to make this happen. This is the amazing work of Grace by which God lifted us from spiritual death to life in Christ. Think of what this means. God triumphs over sin! Any residue of sin is only in our memory. We have been cleansed through Christ because of the Cross.
Don’t focus on the past. The greater truth is that we have been made alive by the work of God. It is the greatest aspect of our life. Every other achievement pales in comparison. Your life was forever changed when you trusted Jesus as Savior. You can never be the same! Glory to God! Out of death Life has come! He lifted you from the graveyard of sin and placed us in His kingdom! Praise the Lord for His Grace and Love!
Jesus is LORD!
