By Grace Through Faith to Faith

By Grace Through Faith to Faith
(Ephesians 2:8-9)
I. Errors and lies about eternal life and God’s favor are both old and common.
GEN 3:4-5; MAT 3:9; 1PE 1:18-19; JOH 5:39.
II. EPH 2:8-9 is one of the best known texts of Scripture but one of the most misunderstood. Observe what can be concluded from this text:
A. There is a current salvation that the Ephesian saints have by grace.
B. This grace is channelled to them through faith.
C. This salvation is not of works.
D. This salvation excludes human boasting.
E. It is a gift, not an offer.
