"Glory Be," a new song from NewSpring Worship, was inspired by Luke 15:24, Ephesians 2:1, and 2 Corinthians 6:18


If you've ever seen a zombie apocalypse movie or TV show, you know about scenes of zombies walking around the earth. They appear to be alive on the outside, but they are dead on the inside. Their outward appearance may look full of life, but their inward appearance says differently.

In Ephesians 2, Paul explains that is how many of us were. We were just like zombies walking around as if we were alive, but really we were dead. We were dead in our sin. That was the bad news.

But Paul goes on to tell us the good news that in Jesus we are made alive. In Jesus we have abundant life. In Jesus we have a future. In Jesus we have no condemnation. In Jesus we have no shame. In Jesus we have been given a brand new start. In Jesus we have been set free.

We no longer have to walk around lifeless and numb. Let Jesus raise you up to life. Let his glory be made alive in you.
