I Eph 2:1 you were dead in your trespasses - sins.
God has reconciled Himself to us.
We are the righteousness of God. God does
not count (account) our sins against us. What keeps us from being reconciled to
Him — is not believing that He is not counting our sins against us. 2
Cor 5:19-21 God was in Christ reconciling (receiving payment and closing the
book) the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He
has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we (Paul & us)
are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us; we beg
you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew
no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in
Him. John 1:29 Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the
world! Col 2:12-14 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were
also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from
the dead. And when you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision
of your flesh, He made you alive, together with Him, having forgiven us all our
transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of
decrees against us and which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the
way, having nailed it to the cross. I Eph 2:1 you were dead in your trespasses
sins, Rom 5:12 Therefore, just as through one sin entered into the world,
and death sin, and so death spread to all men, Joh 5:24 has passed out of death
into life. Joh 6:33 He gives life Joh 11:26 will never die.

POINT #2: YOU (ALONG WITH THE WORLD) ARE DEAD.
POINT #3: YOU (ALONG WITH THE WORLD) NEED LIFE.
POINT #4: HAVING BEEN RECONCILED BY HIS DEATH, YOU MAY HAVE LIFE. HOW?

SO NOW YOU ARE MADE READY FOR HIM TO COME IN TO LIVE IN YOU.
YOU MUST HAVE LIFE, HIS LIFE. WITHOUT HIS RESURRECTED LIFE IN YOU - YOU ARE
JUST A FORGIVEN CORPSE. PLEASE, BE RECONCILED AND ASK HIM TO COME LIVE IN YOU.
