Text: Ephesians 2:1-10
Fully devoted followers of Jesus trust Him alone for their salvation.
- 1. Salvation by Works: Hopeless
- No one can live a perfect life.
1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, Eph 2:1 (NIV)
- No one can cover their sin by doing enough good works.
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. Eph 2:8-9 (NIV)
- 2. Salvation by Grace: Amazing
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– Eph 2:8 (NIV)
- Salvation comes by grace alone as a priceless gift.
- Salvation comes by faith alone in Christ Jesus.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”—Jesus (John 3:16 NIV)
