Dead in Transgressions, Alive in Christ

As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions-- it is by grace you have been saved. (Ephesians 2: 1-5, NIV)

(Relative) Blog Silence

I apologize to anyone possibly wondering why this blog has been so painfully slow as of late. The blog has simply taken a back seat to, among lesser things, my wedding, move to another city, sale of my current home, and interspersed writing and reading projects. Once the first three are completed, I hope to resume semi-regular posting once again.
