Ephesians 2: 1-10 • February 17, 2019 • Pastor Phil Burggraff

Passage: Ephesians 2:1–10 Theme: The Gospel Believed Conviction #2: God is glorified through Christ as his gospel is proclaimed, believed, and obeyed, transforming the believer to become like Christ. The Gospel Believed: • We are/were dead in our trespasses and sins (1–3). o We walked in the way of this world. o We walked under the control of the ruler of this world. o We lived according to our own fleshly desires. o We deserved the wrath of God. • God made us alive with Jesus Christ (4–7). o Basis: He did this because of his mercy and love toward us. o Actions: He raised us from the dead and seated us with Christ in heaven. o Purpose: He will show his incomparable riches of grace to us in Jesus Christ. Implications: • We are saved by God’s grace through faith (8–9). • We are God’s new creation in Jesus Christ, transforming us to do good works (10). Main Idea: God graciously saves those of us who believe in what he has done for us in Jesus Christ in order to transform us to live like Christ. Application Questions: 1. How does Ephesians 2:1–3 describe us in our spiritual state apart from the work of God? Describe the different things that Paul indicates about people in this spiritual state. Is everyone truly this bad off? 2. According to this text, why did God choose to act toward us? 3. What is it that God has done for us? For what purpose did he do these things? 4. What does the phrase “by grace you are saved through faith” mean? What would happen if salvation came by any other means? 5. Where does “good works” fit into what God is doing in the life of the believer? Are they necessary?
