“Once you were dead because of your disobedience of many sins”
Apart from jesus we have spiritual death living in sin of the flesh. Apart from god we go to the things of this world which ends up draining us and deceiving us. He saved me by grace freely given by faith alone in Jesus. He created me a new in Christ Jesus so his purpose in my life could come to pass. Paul was writing that there was a lot happening in our lives on the outside but god wants to transform us on the inside through our heart. By the blood of jesus I am brought close to god to be united with him. God created us to be family, and by the body of christ, we are the light of the world.
