Made Alive in Christ
1 And you 1were adead 2in your trespasses and sins,
2 in which you aformerly walked according to the 1course of bthis world, according to cthe prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in dthe sons of disobedience.
3 Among them we too all aformerly lived in bthe lusts of our flesh, 1indulging the desires of the flesh and of the 2mind, and were cby nature dchildren of wrath, eeven as the rest.
4 But God, being arich in mercy, because of bHis great love with which He loved us,
5 even when we were adead 1in our transgressions, made us alive together 2with Christ (bby grace you have been saved),
6 and araised us up with Him, and bseated us with Him in cthe heavenly places in dChrist Jesus,
7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing ariches of His grace in bkindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
8 For aby grace you have been saved bthrough faith; and 1that not of yourselves, it is cthe gift of God;
9 anot as a result of works, so that bno one may boast.
