Studies in Ephesians Ephesians 2:410 Ephesians 2:1-3 We were dead in trespasses Sins, walking according to the course of this world Sons of disobedience By nature, children of wrath

God, Rich in mercy and love (4) But God where our salvation begins! A God of mercy kindness and concern, Deut. 4:31, Psa. 116:5, 1 Peter 1:3 God of love John 3:16 1 John 4:7-11 Rich and great

Made us alive with Christ (5) even when we were dead in trespasses wrongdoing, violating moral standards, sin. Spiritual death. We are made alive in Christ the antithesis of the above death. Jesus made this possible. HOW do we come in contact with the death of Jesus?

Colossians 2:11-13, Rom. 6:3-6, Gal. 3:27 Made us alive with Christ (5) By grace you have been saved Grace Gods gift offered to all mankind. His grace relives the guilt of our sin Grace is Gods part in our salvation! He sent Jesus, gave us His word, prayer,

the church, Rom. 5:8-11 Raised us up together(6-7) We are not just made alive We are raised up together Not just alive, but changed! Spiritually we are a new creation. 2 Cor. 5:17,

Col. 3:9-11, together Raised us up together(6-7) Made us sit together in the heavenly places in Him Our spiritual inheritance creation (Eph. 1:11-12) our citizenship Phil. 3:20, Eph. 2:19, our anchor is there Heb. 6:19;

Heb. 12:12 Colossians 3:1-2 Raised us up together(6-7) that in the ages to come Possibly the ages has reference to generations, dispensation, lifetime, etc. since Christ came. NOTE: Since Christ came,

spiritual law has not changed! (Heb. 13:8) Raised us up together(6-7) He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in HIs kindness toward us in Christ Jesus AGAIN, this is HOW God demonstrates His love (His

part). He ads, kindness Saved by grace through faith(8-9) Grace Gods part (summarizing our context) Up to this point, Paul has not dealt with anything we do to receive the gift of Gods grace salvation.

Saved by grace through faith(8-9) Faith Paul appeals to mans part in his salvation. Faith trusting God (not merely trusting in God) and believing God (not merely believing in God) Saved by grace through faith(8-9)

Faith mans part. Luke 6:46 Belief means we will obey! Matthew 7:21-23 John 3:36

Saved by grace through faith(8-9) Faith mans part. John 3:36, He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. Believes (pisteuo)pisteuo) Does not believe (pisteuo)apeitheo) does not obey!

Saved by grace through faith(8-9) Faith mans part. not of yourselves, it is the gift of God Salvation is not and cannot be earned! It is a gift. Luke 17:10 But you must accept it (by faith)

Saved by grace through faith(8-9) Faith mans part. not of works, lest anyone should boast This is WHY we cannot earn our salvation lest we brag! That implies a certain TYPE of works.

Saved by grace through faith(8-9) Faith mans part. How does this apply to baptism? Isnt baptism a work? Yes, but not meritorious. It is a work in the same way faith is a work 1 Thess. 1:3, 2 Thess. 1:11, James 2:14-18 Saved by grace through faith(8-9)

Faith mans part. Belief is a work John 6:2829 Jesus said, This is the work of God, that you believe in Him who sent Me. If Ephesians 2:8-9 teaches no type of work is involved in our salvation, then belief is not necessary according to Jesus Saved by grace through faith(8-9)

Faith mans part. Baptism is a work of faith! Colossians 2:11-12, raised with Him through faith in the working of God. 1 Peter 3:21, not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God Baptism is about believing God and His promises

We are His workmanship (10) Our salvation is His work! (That is why we emphasize His grace) Created in Christ Jesus for good works our faith is NOT about mere mental assent! James 2:14-24

We are His workmanship (10) Which God prepared before hand that we should walk in them. God tells us what to do! Titus 2:14, 3:1, 8, 14 Condemnation awaits those who do not obey 1 Peter 4:17, Romans 2:8-9, Heb. 3:18-19 (pisteuo)apeitheo) disobey!

Gods grace has made us alive Have you responded to His grace?
