God’s Rich Mercy & Great Love

In a much loved passage in Ephesians 2, the Apostle Paul notes that there is spiritual deadness we can't do anything about on our own, because naturally the dead can't do anything for themselves. However, Paul takes a dramatic turn and moves us from the paralysis of being spiritually dead to something most glorious indeed - being made alive in Christ.
