“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved.” (Ephesians 2:4-5)
What an incredible truth! The one word that God has to describe human beings like you and me born into this world is…dead. “Dead in transgressions.” Dead, lifeless, breathless, deceased corpses that are fit only for rotting and decaying. By nature that’s our spiritual condition because you and I were born in sin. And, as you know, something that is dead CANNOT do anything on its own.
But what happened? GOD made you alive! GOD brought you to faith! GOD took you from the path to hell and put you on the path to eternal life! GOD took you from spiritual death to spiritual life! GOD took you from spiritual blindness and gave you spiritual sight! GOD took you from the darkness of sin and gave you the light of life!
Something that is dead…brought to life. That’s a miracle! And that’s what God says you are! God brought you to faith in Jesus as your Savior, that means, you’re a miracle!
What an awesome truth to treasure this week…you’re a miracle of God!
Joyful to know that God worked a miracle in my heart, just like you,
