” Among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest…..But God, being rich in mercy, because of this great love with which He loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ Jesus – by grace your saved.”(ref, Eph 2*3-5).
He delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us to the Kingdom of the Son He loves, He saved us not by works of righteousness that we have done but on the basis of His mercy, through the washing of the new birth and the renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us in full measure through Jesus Christ our Savoir. ” I will sprinkle you with pure water and you will be clean from all your impurities. I will purify you from all your idols.(ref, Eze 36*26).
And so, since we have been justified by His grace, we become heirs with the confident expectation of eternal life. and he raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. For by grace your saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. it is not from our works, surely no one should boast. and what is the incomparable greatness of His power toward us who believe in Christ Jesus, as displayed in the exercise of His immense strength.
For we are His workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.(ref, Eph 2*10)
