Ephesians 2:4-6 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Even when we were dead in sins, which means spiritually dead unto God. Destitute of a life that recognizes and is devoted to God, because we were given up to trespasses and sins, we were under that curse of sin. That’s why we did what we did, its not that we were bad people inside because God made us good. David said I was born in to a world of sin and shaped in its iniquity and so were we until we found Jesus! The one who can save us from that curse!
Then God hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) to make one alive together- we got born again! Made alive unto God- But he did this even when we were dead to Him- He made this way – He won our choice back- I have heard people say its not fair – I don’t have a say in this – sin was here when I got here- why do I have to suffer- why was I even born-
But the truth is you were born, you are here, and the wise thing to do is to make the best of this life- God could have abandoned you – he could have let sin rule us forever- but he didn’t— he made a choice so that I could have a choice!! The freedom to choose came from Jesus Christ – it is not one sided anymore- I was bound by sin- I was born in it an shaped in it- until Jesus came!!! He now has purchased my freedom from that bondage – I DON’T HAVE TO SERVE SIN ANY LONGER!! I have a choice!! Jesus bought back that lost choice- and all we have to do is to repent – turn away from that life of the sin curse- and ask God to make us alive unto Him!!! God Bless you!!
