Ephesians 2:1-10 - Day 4

In order to appreciate what it means to saved by grace, we must see how Paul describes this to the Ephesians.

First, he states what they were dead in: Trespasses and sin, according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, driven by the lust of the flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and mind, and by nature the children of wrath.

Then, Paul describes what they have. They have power of God. He quickened them.  He made them alive when they were dead.  He raised them up together!  That doesn’t have to do with from the dead- but with exalting. He made them sit together. Christ sits at the right-hand, but we sit together with Him.

Also, Paul will describes what they are. They are saved through faith by His grace. His grace is a gift that provides lost man’s salvation. Further, they are His workmanship. His new creation. His handiwork. In all of this, the emphasis is on what God is doing.

We are His workmanship. God wants to provide an everlasting monument to His own goodness. He wants all to know that He is good and loving above what man could ever imagine.
