Ephesians 2:8-10 - Dallas Willard once said, "Grace is opposed to earning but it is not opposed to effort." Meaning, we do not work to earn our salvation but we do work in grateful response to the salvation that is freely given to us. In Ephesians 2 Paul emphasizes the importance of living from our gratitude for grace.
A Study through the book of Ephesians. The Mystery of Christ is the plan that God had kept hidden for ages. It was his plan to restore the world that sin had broken. That plan was revealed in Jesus and is available to all who follow Him. The book of Ephesians will help us understand the depth of that mystery and how to live it out in our everyday lives.
