Ephesians 2: 1-7
1. Who we were: because of sin

We were dead in our trespasses and sins
Psalm 51:1-4

“The heinousness of sin lies not so much in the nature of the sin committed as it does in the greatness of the One sinned against”

  • – Following the world (vs 2)
  • – Following the Devil (vs 2)
  • – Following our desires (vs 3)

Jeremiah -17:9

2. Who we are: because of Jesus
We are alive in Christ

  • – Lavished in love (vs 4)
  • – Established in mercy (vs 6)
  • – Covered by grace (vs 7)

Romans 5:8

Because of sin:               Because of Jesus:

we were enslaved           we are free

we were rejected             we are accepted

we were condemned       we are forgiven

we were separated          we are reconciled

we were lost                     we are found

we were dead                   we are alive
