The LORD has chosen Zion, He has desired it for His dwelling. Psalm 132:13

Union with Christ

Even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved) Eph. 2:5
God loved us irrespective of who we are and what we do even when we were unable to obey the LORD and rebelled against Him.
God doesn’t want us to see in our dead state, He has changed us for the better and gave us a new identity by forgiving all our sins. 
Our union with the Lord Jesus Christ is the center of our salvation and sanctification, those who have died in Christ are to be raised to alive with Him.
Have a Blessed Day!
