Dead through sin Part 2
TEXT: Ephesians 2:1-3
All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature, we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. (V3)
By not playing the game of hypocrisy and “holier than thou”, I must state with all conviction that we have all sinned and fell short of the Glory of God (Romans 3:23).
Paul reiterates this truth in our opening scripture when he writes “all of us used to …”. I keep highlighting some words because I want us to pay attention to them. With no exclusion, the entire human race had sinned and the only reward we deserved was death (Romans 6:23).
So we were once dead because of our disobedience and sins. How wretched we were then, to be engulfed in the web net of sin. All we needed was a Saviour to free us from this death and trap.
