People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 2:4


Eph 2:4 God, who is rich in mercy. Having shown that both Jews and Gentiles were spiritually dead, Paul now declares the spiritual resurrection of the saints. This lifting up from death to a new life is due to God, "rich in mercy", and on account of the "great love wherewith he loved us". Eph 2:5 affirms the fact.
