Can you remember what your life was like before you came to Christ? In vv.1-3 we learned that we were dead in our trespasses and sins, but God made us alive. But in this second part Paul tells the believers to think back on how far from God they really were. We were ‘aliens’, ‘strangers’, and ‘foreigners’ having no hope and without God and yet still here in this world! We knew nothing about all the special privileges that being a citizen of Israel could bring. We were far off (vv.11-13) at that time! ‘But now‘, Wow! That changes......

In this first part of Ephesians 2 we are told, ‘You were dead’ and had to be ‘quickened’ or ‘made alive’ (vv.1-3). This ‘being Regenerated’ or ‘Being Born Again’ took place in us ‘when we were dead in trespasses’ (v.5). God did not wait for us to reach out to Him, because in our ‘dead’ state, bound as we were by sin (John 8:33-34; Rom 6:12-23; 2 Tim.2:25-26) we never would have! Thank God that in ‘His great love with which He loved us’ (Eph.2:4), He took the initiative so that Salvation is completely......

Not only do we have Redemption through the blood of Christ, but we are completely forgiven. This was an amazing act of God’s grace, which God has ‘lavished upon us’ (NIV). However, God has revealed the mystery of the Council of His Will in that these things were planned for His own chosen people before the world began, in the councils of God’s mind with complete wisdom and understanding !...

It was great to get back from the summer holidays and get right back into the pulpit and begin a new series. This time starting in Ephesians. This first part covers only vv.1-6, but it is amazing to see the emphasis that Paul makes on God’s Will and Purposes! All of God’s Will and Purposes are for the Praise of the Glory of His Grace, and so it should come as no surprise to find out that Paul loves to talk about the grace of God in Salvation, placing it outside of anything that......
