Ephesians 2:1-5

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body[a] and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.[b] But[c] 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—

One response to “Ephesians 2:1-5

  1. We were dead in sin, as Christ was dead by our sin. God raised Christ to life and gave Him victory over sin so that we could be made alive in Christ to no longer be dead in our sin. It is not me, but Christ, who quickened me and made me alive and victorious over sin.
