made alive in Him //

how can we be made alive,
even when we are already breathing?
before being renewed,
we were dead in our sin.
breathing in this world,
but dying inside.
living by our flesh,
which is what destroys us.
how ironic that our very selves
cannot do us any good.

this was because we were never meant
to rely on ourselves.

rich in mercy.
abundant in love.
God gave us Jesus,
so we may be alive in Him.
by grace we are saved.
not by what we do,
or who we are
but by who He is
and what He has
already done for us.


with love and peace,
