Ephesians 2:5.”Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
John 3:18. “He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God.”
You see, before we came to know Jesus Christ as Savior, we were already dead in our sin. Because of His amazing grace, He provided salvation for us through the death and resurrection of Jesus, His only begotten Son.
He has quickened us, made us alive, even though we were already dead.
We are saved by grace, and grace alone. Not because we deserve it, or have earned it through our good works, but because God provided the only good work that would ever bring us into right standing with Him; that is, the sacrificial death of His Son, and His resurrection that brings life to all who believe on Him.
Christianity is the only religion in the history of the world that offers a risen Savior!
