    not of work should anyman boast this could be in two phases 1,It 's God 's will for man not to boast of whatsoever thing he is or achieve,for their is wages for it God 's will of command .2,we are not responsible for what we have,even the salvation of our soul.So the glory thereof does not belong to us.10k u
  • Richard hughes on Ephesians 2:8
    salvation through Jesus is God 's gift to man ' it is free to all who believe and accept Him and the sacrifice he gave. the more important part is what you do with this great gift. leave it giftwrapped and bury it will cost you your reward in heaven . use it on earth and the covenanted blessing of God will be upon you . praise god for His unspeakable gift.

  • Timothy on Ephesians 2
    This Chapter 2, revealed the procession to salvation, one is FAITH and other is GRACE, Christ gave both, but man must exercise faith even after being saved. Faith and Grace are both established and continuous substance as catalyst in Christian race for fulfillment of God 's purpose for man 's existence on earth.

  • Hannah on Ephesians 2
    Thank you Jesus for coming into my heart and saving me!!!! I always feel such peace and comfort when I read His word.
  • Cheryl. C. on Ephesians 2:8
    Truly the Grace of God is amazing to save a wretch like me. Sin had such a hold on me at one time. I Thank God He loved me while I was yet a sinner.I can say it was surely not by works but His Grace. Still yet today and forever if & when I sin it is of Grace that I am set free from bondage : nothing I think that I can do will merit me salvation through Jesus Christ. He & He alone does the Work: all I have to do is Believe. Praise The Lord !!!!

  • Ajay kumar on Ephesians 2:12
    what i can say the church of ehesians is only a mirror for today's believers that do't lose our Love toward chrirt.amen!!!
  • Anthony on Ephesians 2:21
    Most of the above translations refer to separate buildings framed or joined together. This is a reference to both the Kingdom Church with Israel in view and the Body of Christ, which is the church of today, consisting of both saved Jews and Gentiles. Both structures are based on the Lord and grows into becoming the habitation of God throughout all eternity. Amen
  • Anonymous on Ephesians 2
    This is my response to Ciscokid on Ephesians 2:9. That salvation is by Grace through faith alone is clear according to this verse, that no man may boast one day in heaven that it is through their meritorious works (see also Ephesians 2v5). The things mentioned such as prayer, fasting etc. will not save one from the righteous judgment of God. It is the Blood of Christ alone and faith in that blood that saves man. Believe and be saved. That's all God asks of us, nothing more
  • Anthony on Ephesians 2:15
    Paul is the Apostle to the Gentiles. To him was given the message for this dispensation, which is the dispensation of the Grace of God, with its one body, being the Church, the Body of Christ. This is the one new man that is spoken of in this passage. Galations makes it further clear that the Law of Commandments was indeed abolished as Salvation is by Grace through Faith and that not of Works (of the Law) (Ephesians 2 v 8-9). We should rightly divide the Word of Truth if we are to properly understand even straight forward passages such as this (2 Timothy 2 v 15)
  • Jenn on Ephesians 2
    In the time pased God loves for us is unconditoinal love, he knew each an every one our sins but yet he still love us, for by his grace he saved us from our sin...
  • Rosina franklin on Ephesians 2
    in time past we were dead in sin like others . the riches of the grace has made us what we are today so let us use the opportunity given to us to serve him with fear and trembling and show mercy and love to others who have not yet known the true
  • Anthony on Ephesians 2:4
    This GREAT love of God is towards all humanity (mankind)and not only to believers. If you have not yet trusted the Lord Jesus Christ to save you, know that God loves you and Christ died for your sins. Believe and be saved.
  • Rulyn Galapia on Ephesians 2:8
    Truly we are only saved by grace...through faith in God and no other way. We are really truly blessed to received Christ as our Lord and personal saviour.
  • Ciscokid on Ephesians 2
    Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:9
    Because of Ephesians 2:9 some believers have the outrageous idea that works will not save. So I say to them Ephesians 2:9 is only saying that the SELF RIGHTEOUS works of man will not save him. Ephesians is only speaking of MANS self righteousness works--not the works of GOD--which we MUST obey to be saved. e.g. repentance ,praying, fasting, doing the WORKS of God. This scripture has been butchered--in order to rid man of his obligations to OBEY Gods word.
    Yes works do SAVE--BUT it's the works of God --which save.-
  • Rosalina on Ephesians 2
    (This is my response to John Juai's comment dated 8/13/2013 at 10:38pm on Ephesians Chapter 2 about verse 6):

    On the day of judgement which is the time of the dead when they should be judged, GOD shall give reward unto King David being one of HIS servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear God's name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth (Revelation 11:18).
  • William on Ephesians 2:15
    Messiah has taken away the entire law of the first covenant and replaced it with a pure and simple covenant command in which the whole torah of the first covenant is fulfilled and also that the new command now gives us the ability to produce fruits to Father which the dead works of the first covenant torah could not produce. Praise Father in the name of Yahushua!
  • John Juai on Ephesians 2:6
    Jesus said, "No one has ascended to heaven but HE who came down from heaven,that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven." Where is king David now?
  • Robert Fishback on Ephesians 2:7
    One of the greatest promises regarding God's eternal purpose which means a continuous un-veling of things He has planned forever....and we will be partakers of them all...
  • Moses Abudu on Ephesians 2
    We are the excellent work of God 2corinthians 5:17 We must work in the newness of live in CHRIST
  • We have to keep in mind this Epistle was written by Paul. Peter warns us in 2 Peter 3 15-16, that we are to be careful in interpreting Paul's letters. Through this p***age we can plainly see that Christ abolished the "Enmity" or hostility between the House of Israel and the House of Judah. I think that to correctly interpret this p***age we need to remember that Israel became a divided nation. They split into Northern (House of Israel) and Southern (House of Judah) kingdoms. Many interpret the next part of the verse to mean that the Law has been abolished. This interpretation is in direct conflict with many other scriptures such as Romans 3:31, and can lead to the error of lawlessness as Peter said (referenced above). The King James bible says "Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the Law of commandments contained in ordinances.....". I believe what Paul is trying to get across is that Christ has brought peace. He has brought and end to enmity, or hostility or any dispute even regarding the Law of Commandments contained in ordinances.
