In order to appreciate what we are as children of God, we must have a fundamental understanding of what God has done for us. In an ongoing series from Ephesians, Pastor Tim preaches about being dead in trespasses and in sins. The Apostle Paul makes it clear that we have all been in a condition of being dead in sins. But many say that the way we overcome being dead is by making a decision for Christ or letting him in our hearts. The problem with that is this – dead means dead, and nothing dead can bring itself to life. It takes an act of the Spirit upon a spiritually dead heart to cause it to live.
