The Gift of Gods Grace

Passage: Ephesians 2:1-10
Service Type:

So often, we settle for “good enough” in our lives. But God never meant for us to live “good enough” lives – He calls us his “Masterpiece” and He seeks to do immeasurably more in our lives than we could ever ask for or think of. As a church, Grace Community hopes to be a place of God’s immeasurable love, joy, peace, and grace. Join us on Sundays in this study of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians as we discover how to live more fully and deeply in God’s “Immeasurably More”.

We would like to stay connected to you!

We encourage you to spend some time with God this week, dive into the Bible, and go a bit deeper on this topic. Please consider these study questions for further reflection:

Question 1
At the beginning of Ephesians 3, Paul states the reason why he wrote this letter.  He uses the Greek word “apokalypsis” which means to uncover, to reveal, to illuminate a new truth.  Read Ephesians 3:2-6, and then our main passage in Ephesians 2:1-10.  What is it that Paul wants to reveal?  How does this new truth affect us today?

Question 2
Ephesians 2:1-3 paints a dark picture of who we were. Like a jeweler uses a dark velvet cloth as a background to show off the brilliance of a diamond, Paul uses this dark background of who we were WITHOUT CHRIST to introduce us to who we are IN CHRIST.  We were without life, freedom, and without hope.  What was the dark background of your life like before you were in Christ?

Question 3
In verse 4, Paul uses a small but powerful word – “BUT”.  Then, he goes on to talk about God’s mercy and grace toward us.  Read verses 4-9 and think about what God does, why he does it, and how he does it.

Question 4
Verse 10 says that we are God’s handiwork (workmanship, masterpiece) and that he created us IN CHRIST to do good works (NOT saved by good works).  What does this statement mean to you?
