But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

– Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

One of the attributes that we celebrate during Advent is love. God’s love is most evident in that He loved us when we were unlovable. The Scripture tells us that Adam’s rebellion released sin and death over all of us. When Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sin and rose in victory over death, God’s life is now available to anyone who receives the grace that Jesus provides. We have been brought back from death. This is true love in action.
