I have had several pets die. It is always sad. I still miss them, but I can’t bring them back to life. Because of our sins, we all die spiritually. It’s sad, but there is nothing we can do by ourselves that will bring us back to God.
But there is hope! Verse 13 of our Bible Reading tells us, “You were spiritually dead because of your sins and because you were not free from the power of your sinful self. But God gave you new life together with Christ. He forgave all our sins.” When we follow and obey God, He sends His Holy Spirit to live in us. The Holy Spirit gives us new life that will continue forever.
Praise God! That is wonderful news! Because of our sins, we owe God a great debt. But Jesus paid that debt through His death on the cross. We have a new life because of Jesus!
Obey God and His plan of salvation today! Then you will have a new life that lasts forever.
