One of the most marvelous truths in all the bible is revealed in Ephesians, chapters 1 and 2. The apostle Paul declares that when we placed our faith in Jesus, we were spiritually raised from the dead! “You were dead in the trespasses and sins … But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Eph. 2:1, 4-6). We are Risen men and women, and we are called to live resurrection lives!
