Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 2:5


2:5 He hath quickened us together with Christ - In conformity to him, and by virtue of our union with him. By grace ye are saved - Grace is both the beginning and end. The apostle speaks indifferently either in the first or second person; the Jews and gentiles being in the same circumstance, both by nature and by grace. This text lays the axe to the very root of spiritual pride, and all glorying in ourselves. Therefore St. Paul, foreseeing the backwardness of mankind to receive it, yet knowing the absolute necessity of its being received, again asserts the very same truth, #Eph 2:8|, in the very same words.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 2:5


Eph 2:5 Hath quickened us together with Christ. As he quickened Christ and raised him, so when we were dead in sins he gave us spiritual life by the gospel and lifted us to a new life. "We were planted in the likeness of his death and resurrection" (Ro 6:5). By grace ye are saved. Not by works of the law, as he has shown so fully in the Galatian letter.

    Who ever left their comment for me : I am correcting your thought about me : I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior !! That day I got saved !! Jesus Christ is my Lord ! He let's me know from the time I got saved of things that need to be taken care of and put out of my life : This Lordship that I have with my Lord is an on going fellowship !!! I have been with my Lord and Savior for 35 years and through out those years Through His leadership and Lordship since I got saved :I have with my Lord's help been able to rid of many things that were not of God : For the remainder of my life here on earth , there will be a continuance of obeying my Lord till it is time for me to go home. I did nothing to get saved : I received His salvation that is in Christ Jesus and in receiving His salvation I received His Lordship as well.

    John 3:16 For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten Son Jesus Christ that whosoever believes in him shall not be perished but have eternal life. What a loving God we serve. Thanks to the blood of Jesus that shed for us by his blood we are forgiven and redeemed. HE PAID THE PRICE FOR US. OUR JOB NOW IS TO PRAISE HIM AND WORSHIP HIM ONLY FOR HE IS WORTHY. AMEN

    Ephesians is the greatest love letter from our heavenly father to the body of believers.
