How many movies scenes can you think of where the hero you think is dead dramatically comes alive again? Peeta in the Hunger Games, Neo in The Matrix, Optimus Prime in Transformers, Batman at the end of Dark Knight Rises. Any others?

It’s hard to beat that for drama right?

So imagine the cameras are on you – dead, out for the count, lifeless. Unresponsive to the people desperately trying to bring you back.

Those movie scenes are onto something – it’s what happened to us when God took our soul-dead selves and breathed life into us again.

Saved. By grace.

So what happens next?

Psalm 30
