Dead State

Let us continue to muse from Ephesians 2:1-3 and the before and after picture of grace. We are looking these days at the position of humanity and the first of which is a state of being dead. God told Adam and Eve when they disobeyed they would surely die. This meant they would be dead spiritually and dying physically. The Lord told them they would return to the dust. There are 14 major elements found in dirt and all 14 are found in the human body. We are told that 2 million dead particles fall off of us every hour and that 65% of the dust in our homes have our DNA in it. Man was created from the dust but not the ladies. They were created from Adam’s rib. That is secondhand dirt so I do not know if that would warrant bragging rights for the ladies or not. Paul said we have Christ the treasure in an earthen vessel. The phrase earthen vessel is translated dirt bag. So even in our saved state we are nothing more than dirt bags that have the eternal Son of God dwelling inside of us.
