day no. 13,406: you will die and were dead

Colossians 2:13-15

13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This He set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in Him.

Not only will you certainly die someday, you already are dead or were dead.

We were dead.

All of us.

And we all will die.

All of us.

If we do nothing, we will stay dead and die in our sins and be resurrected to eternal damnation and torment.

If God does nothing, there is nothing we can do to remedy our situation.

But God has done something.

He disarmed the rule of sin and the authority of shame that kept us held captive to death.

He died so that we might be brought to life and live forever with Him, the one who died and yet now lives eternally.
