Living Recreated Lives in Christ

Ephesians 2:8-10 by Dr. Cory Gonyo

Living Recreated Lives In Christ Ephesians 2:8-10 Purpose: to live the way we were created to live 1. God’s Glory Exalted in His grace Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. What do “by” and “through” indicate? exactly how salvation happens Notice the parallel “not” statements What are they? not of yourselves and not as a result of works Salvation is a gift of God Have you received it? It is all this way “so that” no one may boast See Romans 3:27-30 2. Living Out The Purpose of Our Salvation Ephesians 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. The “holy ones” are the workmanship of Whom? God Created how? in Christ Jesus For what? good works Which came from where? God prepared beforehand Notice the stark contrast between the use of “walk” here and in v. 2 The “who” and the “how” and the “why” of salvation: Believers are saved by God’s grace, through our faith, for good works
