I. PAST CONDITION

A. Dead in Tresspasses and Sin

1. Miserable condition.

2. All those who are in sin are dead in sin.

B. State of Separation

1. Cut off from your power source, source of

life.

2. Physical death separates you from breath,

food, everything neccessary for life.

Spiritual death, being dead in tresspasses

and sins, separates you from God.

3. When something is dead it shows no emotions

or feelings.

Someone dead in sin has no concern for

spiritual things.-"...For the preaching of

the cross is to them which perish,

foolishness..."

C. Conformed to the World

1. "Wherein in times past ye walked according

to the course of this world." (v.2)

2. We was lost, dead in sin, we was "out in

the world", so we behaved as people of the

world behave.

3. We strived to fulfill the lusts and desires

of the flesh and mind.

D. We Where All Sinners

1. Rom. 5:12-"...by one man sin entered ...

death by sin...."

2. "...death reigned from Adam to Moses...."

3. "...all have sinned..." "...the wages of

sin is death..."

------------------------------------------------------

***What a horrible condition we was in, and others are still in. Dead in tresspasses and sin, separated from God, servants of sin, "having no hope and without God in the world." ...BUT GOD...***

------------------------------------------------------

II. BUT GOD

A. Loved Us

1.For Sinners

-"...God so loved the world.." -Jn 3:16

-"...but God commendeth His love toward

us..." -Rom. 5:8

2.Unconditional Love

- 1 John 4:9-10 (quickview) 

3.Remarkable Love

- "Behold what manner of love the father

hath bestowed upon us, that we should be

called the sons of God..."

* God loves us, and there is nothing we can do

about it!!!

B. Quickened US (Saved Us)

1. Psalm 40:2 (quickview) 

2. There was nothing we could do to merit this

we couldn’t earn it, but by grace trough

faith He saved us.

3. He didn’t just patch up our old life, but

gave us a brand new one through Christ

Jesus.

4. Saved us through the preaching of the

Gospel.

-"...whosoever..."

5. A "Free Gift"

C. Raised Us Up Together In Heavenly Places

1. We don’t have to be dead anymore.

-"..if any man be in Christ, he is a new

creation..."

-John 11 (quickview) : When Jesus raised Lazarus, he

came out of the place he was in when he

was dead.

-We don’t have to dwell in the graveyards

of sin anymore, God has raised us up.

2. Gave us a new position.

-We are sons of God, heirs of God, joint

heirs with Christ.

-We was once a far off, but now made nigh

to God by the blood of Christ (Eph. 2:13)

*** I WAS ONCE LOST, DEAD IN SIN, ...BUT GOD... LOVED

ME, QUICKENED ME(saved me, made me alive), AND GAVE ME A NEW POSITION***
