Ephesians 2:4-5 (JDV)

Ephesians 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of his great care that he had for us,

Ephesians 2:5 made us alive with Christ even though we were dead in violations. You are saved by favor!

pre-resurrection

Paul describes conversion as a pre-resurrection. We are not just converted to a new theological position, and we have not just joined a new team. We have been given new life, and that life is Christ’s resurrected life. We have been made alive with Christ.

The purpose of this pre-resurrection is not to take the place of the resurrection Jesus promised at the last day. Its purpose is to keep us from living like children of disobedience. It is to keep us from living in death. It is to restore God’s dominion over us that Satan had usurped.

Lord, we are ready to live the pre-resurrection life you have given us.
