Big Truth:

We Are Dead In Our Sin

Romans 5:12; 6:16; 7:5; Ephesians 2:1-3; James 1:14-15

Bible Verse:

But the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:23

Big Ideas:

  • Sin not only makes us bad; sin makes us spiritually dead.
  • Our spiritual death affects every area and relationship in our lives.
  • Dead people cannot raise themselves back to life.
  • We need resurrection.

Bible Story:

Ezekiel 37:1-14

God gave His special messenger, Ezekiel a vision of a valley of dry bones. In the vision, Ezekiel saw the bones come back to life again. God gives us a resurrection through the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus.



Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
