CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible

for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.' So the party began.
that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God's grace that you have been saved!)
Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him.
for the light makes everything visible. This is why it is said, "Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light."
You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins.
