Ephesians 2:1-3 (JDV)

Ephesians 2:1 And you were dead in your violations and sins

Ephesians 2:2 in which you previously lived during the age of this world, according to the ruler of the power of the air, the breath now achieving things among the disobedient sons.

Ephesians 2:3 Among whom we too all previously lived with our fleshly cravings,1 carrying out the preferences of our flesh and thoughts, and we were by nature children under wrath as the others were also.

the living dead

No, Paul is not talking about the zombie apocalypse. He is describing the life lived by an unbeliever before God’s invitation came and changed things. It is a real life, but it is focused on the flesh. It is a real life, but it is the life of a child under wrath. It is a real life, but it is controlled by Satan. It is a real life, but it can only result in disobedient behavior.

Believers have been rescued from this night of the living dead. We can now walk according the power of the resurrected Christ, reflecting his image, being his body.

What will it be?
