Colossians 2:13

Colossians 2:13…”When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ.” How does a spiritual corpse save itself? Answer: It cannot, and needs to be brought to life by something or someone externally. This is what salvation looks like. God initiates, as the spiritually dead cannot bring themselves to life. The spiritually dead are brought to life by God setting His affection on them, placing His spirit in them, and sanctifying them. What about those who are not sanctified, but call themselves Christians? They were never saved, and the lack of fruit is evidence that they are still spiritually dead. James 2:26 says, “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.”
