Because of Calvary,
Ephesians 2:1 (ESV)
And you were dead in the trespasses and sins
“If the Lord hath brought, thee to feel thy need of a Savior, then thou art not dead in, trespasses and sins. Dead men cannot feel. Prick them with a dagger, and they start not; blow out their very brains with a pistol, and there shall be no motion, for they cannot feel. Even though the vital part be touched, they cannot feel the pains and agonies of death; and if thou art conscious of sin, — if thou art seeking the Savior, there is hope for thee. ‘But,’ says one, ‘I am dead in sin, notwithstanding all.’ Well, now, a king’s ransom for one tear that ever streamed from a dead man’s eye! Come now, I challenge thee; I will give thee all this world’s wealth if thou wilt bring me some signs of the pulsations of a dead man’s heart, or the moving of dead man’s lips. If thou canst bring them to me, then I will give thee leave to despair; but such a thing cannot be. Thy sighs, thy groans, thy tears, thy silent prayers, prove that thou art spiritually alive.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1901), p. 513]
