By Grace Through Faith

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:1 -

And you [fn]were dead [fn]in your transgressions and sins,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:2 - in which you formerly walked according to the [fn]course of this world, according to the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:3 - among whom we all also formerly conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the [fn]mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:4 - But God, being rich in mercy because of His great love with which He loved us,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:5 - even when we were dead [fn]in our transgressions, made us alive together [fn]with Christ—by grace you have been saved
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:6 - and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:7 - so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:8 - For by grace you have been saved through faith, and [fn]this not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:9 - not of works, so that no one may boast.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:10 - For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:11 -

Therefore, remember that formerly you—the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:12 - remember that you were at that time without Christ, alienated from the citizenship of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:13 - But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off [fn]have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:14 - For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups one and broke down the dividing wall of the partition
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:15 - [fn]by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might create the two into one new man, making peace,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:16 - and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, having in Himself put to death the enmity.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:18 - for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:19 - So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the [fn]saints, and are of God’s household,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:20 - having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:21 - in whom the whole building, being joined together, is growing into a holy [fn]sanctuary in the Lord,
Unchecked Copy BoxEph 2:22 - in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.
