Alive among the dead
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5
Seeing this sunflower this morning on a walk with my wife Rebecca, it reminded me of this passage in the Word of God. God made us alive with His son Jesus, by His grace and not by our works. Working in a country like Italy, where the religious system is based on works, makes it sometimes difficult to explain the real meaning of this biblical concept. We pray that we can live it with our every day life and with our words.
