But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved;) (Ephesians 2:4-5 NKJV)
EPHESIANS 2 IN ITS ENTIRETY.
Thought for the Week: Perhaps the two sweetest words in the whole Bible are found here, “But God.” In the verse just preceding, it is stated that believers were “children of wrath even as others” before their conversion. But God had a great love for them, which led Him to “quicken, “that is” raise to life, “those who were spiritually dead. Paul then adds emphatically, “by grace you are saved.”
Prayer: Most Heavenly Father, May we say with conviction O Lord, that old Christian saying, “There, but for the grace of God, go I.” May we recognize that it was Your saving love that made the difference in us. We were dead to You, and unable to properly respond to You. But Your love laid hold of us, Lord, and You imparted to us life. And we know that Yours is a love that “will not let us go.” In Jesus’ name. Amen.
