Ephesians 2:1-7 (Ephesians 2:1-7)Jim Griffiths, 17th March 2019
Part of the Ephesians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Paul tells the Ephesians what they are by nature, what they are in Christ and why God has done this for them. We are more sinful than we ever realised...
... but are more loved in Christ than we could ever imagine.

Ephesians 2:1–7 (Listen)
2:1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
