Ephesians 2:1–10

From Death to Life

2 And you were dead v in your trespasses and sins in which you previously * walked according to the ways of this world, w according to the ruler who exercises authority over the lower heavens, x y the spirit z now working in the disobedient. a We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly b desires, carrying out the inclinations c of our flesh and thoughts, and we were by nature children under wrath d as the others were also. But God, who is rich in mercy, e because of His great love f that He had for us, g made us alive h with the * Messiah even though we were dead i in trespasses. You are saved by grace! Together with Christ Jesus He also raised us up and seated us in the heavens, j so that in the coming ages k He might display the immeasurable riches l of His grace through His kindness m to us in Christ Jesus. For you are saved by grace n through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— not from works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are His creation, created o in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time p so that we should walk in them.
