God makes believers alive with Christ

As a human being I am spiritually dead without Christ. I have committed fatal sins which would have resulted directly in me being damned for eternity. But God made me “alive” through Jesus Christ:

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. (Colossians 2:13a NIV)

How am I “alive” in ways that I was not alive before? To begin with, I am able to choose what is right, rather than simply follow the selfish dictates of convenience. I got the power and the knowledge to achieve this directly from God through the example of His Son Jesus Christ.

Also, I was freed from the eternal curse of sin.  Rather than spend eternity apart from God in hell, I will now spend eternity in fellowship with God in heaven.
