John 5:25

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 25 Truly, truly, I say to you, 'The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear shall live. [Because of Adam, we all are dead to the life of God, Gen 2:17,3:24, having been cut off from the tree of life, until we hear the words he speaks to us, which are spirit and life-giving. John 6:63. This is not a one-time hearing; to pass from death to life is to have heard and obeyed those teachings and commands until you are restored to the spiritual image of God, in union with Christ and the Father, once again eating from the tree of life in paradise.]

Ephesians 2:5

 5 And when we were dead in our sins, He brought us to life in union and fellowship with Christ;2 it is through grace that you are saved; [but you have not been saved by grace until you have been brought to life in union and fellowship with Christ, having been raised up together with Christ into heaven.]

Romans 6:13

 13 Neither yield your members to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but yield yourselves to God, as those that are raised alive from the dead, and your members for instruments to be used for righteousness by God.3 [When you have been delivered (freed) from the sins and evil in your heart, God will guide your thoughts, words, and works. We are then a fit instrument for his hand to show the world the love of God, to shake the nations, and to hold out the word of life. Walking under the Spirit's total control, we walk as Jesus walked, and we do works of righteousness as Jesus worked righteousness; then, and only then, are we righteous. Little children, let no man deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. 1 John 3:7]
