“enlivened together with Christ”!!!

January 27th, 2011

Ephesians 2:5 (NKJV)
   …even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

In Ephesians 2:5 the phrase “made us alive together with” is one word in the original Greek manuscripts: συνεζωοποίησεν. “So what?”, you say. Well, I’ll tell you!

The first three letters of the word are a prefix “together with”, in other words, not apart from but united with, joined, together, with, etc. Skip a letter, then the next three mean “alive/enlivened”, the next three mean “to make”, then the last three (among other things) show that the action is completed, point-in-time action.

So what? So, if you have trusted Christ as your Savior, you are part of that little prefix and are *together* with Christ. You are spiritually ALIVE, he made it so in a single instant! If not, please receive Christ today, by grace you are saved IN Christ!

51 Things…

January 27th, 2011

There are many wonderful things which happen to a person at the moment they place their trust in Jesus Christ as their Savior. 

I heard once that someone counted 51 such things!  After searching a while I found that a man named Jim Brettell had catalogued just such a list on www.markkwilliamson.com.  I’ve posted them below rather than simply referring you to that site, because we have this cool little feature where the Bible verses will show up if you hover over the reference!
