Discussion for Ephesians 2

    1 Believe, 2 Repent, 3 Be baptized in the name of Jesus FOR the remission of sins
  • Peter Ogah
    Thanks be to God for His grace and mercy that saved my soul. Amen!
  • Shirley Robinson-Allen
    This is a great chapter. It tell of God's mercy in that while we were sinners He sent His son to die for us so that we who believe on Him might be saved. As His chosen ones we need to serve Him, love our neighbors and do good to all men. In other words we should treat all God's children as brothers and sisters. To God be the glory great things He has done. He loved us so much He gave us His son.
  • Min. Sally Wheeler
    We are blessed to have a LORD who took upon Himself flesh, who preached the truth, then made that ultimate sacrifice on the cross for us. His blessings kept coming, He offers salvation as a free gift to all men who believe in Him. That's not including His righteousness. When God gives mercy, He certainly gives it.

    Glory to God!
    Alleluia!
    Thank You, Almighty God! Thank You!!!
  • Compare this and 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 "the mystery of lawlessness", and Colossians 3:5-7, with 1 John 3:4, which us the definition of sin. Furthermore,the whole letter of 1 John ties God's law together with love. An analogy would be: An Archer who is aiming at the target of righteousness God's ten commandments , contrasted with the one who is aiming at another target unrighteousness . Neither hit the bullseye perfectly 100 of the time, but each practice shooting one or the other target.
