Creation: God created Adam and Eve fully alive, both spiritually and physically.
Fall: Adam and Eve rebelled against God, bringing physical and spiritual death on all of humanity.
Redemption: God is at work to restore his fallen creation. Those who trust Christ are made spiritually alive, even though we don’t experience full physical healing in this life. Christians who have died are fully spiritually alive, but absent from their home in the body.
Restoration: Believers look forward to the day when we will be fully alive, spiritually and physically. On that day, death will be defeated and we will live forever in our bodies with all those who are in Christ.
