We Are Alive
We are alive in Christ, both now and forever.
In Alive in Him: How Being Embraced by the Love of Christ Changes Everything, writer, mom, and pastor's wife Gloria Furman walks through the book of Ephesians, reminding believers of the abundant blessings available in Christ—all for the glory of the Father.
Paul's letter to the Ephesian church details how being embraced by the love of Christ truly changes everything. Deserving the wrath of God, we instead receive kindness, grace, and transformed hearts. He is, in fact, making all things new.
Ephesians teaches us how to interpret the world in light of these eternal realities, enabling us to enjoy the immeasurable riches of his grace and walk in a manner worthy of the gospel.
Scripture, just like good stories, contains truths we should tell and retell until the narrative has shaped us.
The more we are tugged, the more we have to work to guard the time we give to personal study of our Bibles.
By definition, a Christian is one who has been delivered from the domain of darkness and transferred to the kingdom of his beloved Son (Col. 1:13).
