God made us alive (Eph. 2:5)

“Even when we were dead

Through our trespasses,

God made us come alive

Together with Christ.

By grace,

You have been saved.”

καὶ ὄντας ἡμᾶς νεκροὺς τοῖς παραπτώμασιν συνεζωοποίησεν τῷ Χριστῷ, χάριτί ἐστε σεσῳσμένοι,

Paul said, “Even when we were dead (καὶ ὄντας ἡμᾶς νεκροὺς) through our trespasses (τοῖς παραπτώμασιν), God made us come alive together (συνεζωοποίησεν) with Christ (τῷ Χριστῷ).  By grace (χάριτί), you have been saved (ἐστε σεσῳσμένοι).”  Only the Pauline letters used this word (συνεζωοποίησεν) that means to make alive together with.  Paul explained that even when we were dead to spiritual life because of our sinful trespasses, God made us come to life with Jesus Christ.  God’s grace has saved us.  God helped us to turn from deadly sinfulness to a life filled grace in Jesus Christ.  Are you still dead?  Have you come alive with Jesus Christ?
