“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world.”
(Ephesians 2:1, 2 NKJV)

There has been a recent fascination in pop culture with zombies. A Zombie is defined as a deceased human body that has somehow become reanimated and autonomous, yet no longer has sufficient brain or vital functions to be considered alive or capable of thought. Sometimes these zombies are referred to as predatory “walkers” who devour any living thing they catch, and whose bite is infectious to humans. These fictitious zombies are horrible monsters that we would want to avoid and run away from but in reality the walking dead are all around us. Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus as their Lord and Savior have no hope for the future and they are just “walkers” that aimlessly go through life without any eternal purpose. They exist but do not live. But “we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4)
