Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins… – Eph 2:1

You were dead without God! But He made you alive. He rescued you and saved you from all sin! You used to be dead in sin; now you are alive in Christ. You used to be hopeless; but now you have nothing to fear. Without God, you literally would not exist; but because of Jesus, you have eternal life! How can you respond with anything less than life-changing devotion to Jesus?

The Gospel demands a radical response. A relationship with Jesus is not just a nice thing to have on your resume: a cute complement to your lifestyle that makes your life more “full.” Without Jesus, you were nothing; but in Him, you have everything! Let’s spend every day worshipping Him with everything we’ve got!

Prayer:

Father, I was dead without You! I was completely lost, and without hope. But You found me. You rescued me, and brought me back to life. Thank You!
