Grace Alone: Ephesians 2v1-10
Speaker Jonny Grant, on May 21, 2017
Part of the Glorious Salvation series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
- Grace Alone: Ephesians 2v1-10 (page 1174)
Conditional or Unconditional?
'Red' Bull Grace
‘Salvation is according to scripture alone, in Christ alone, by Grace alone through Faith alone to the Glory of God alone.’
‘God does not give something other than himself; in his grace he unties us to his Son by his Spirit that we might share the life and righteousness of the Son. Instead of handing out some enabling blessing, Christ makes himself ours, and so totally that we may plead what is his as ours.’ Tim Chester
1. Dead without Grace
- Dead in Sin
Follow the way of the world
Follow the way of Satan
Follow our own desires
- Objects of Wrath
2. Saved by Grace
- Initiated by God
‘The love of God does not find, but creates, that which is pleasing to him...
Rather than seeking it’s own good, the love of God flows forth and bestows good.
Therefore sinners are attractive because they are loved; they are not loved because they
are attractive.’ Martin Luther
- United to Christ
‘You are so cemented to Christ that he and you are as one person, which cannot be separated but remains attached to him forever and declares: ‘I am as Christ.’ And Christ, in turn says: ‘I am as that sinner who is attached to Me and I to Him. For we are joined together into one flesh and bone.’ Martin Luther
Made alive with Christ
Raised with Christ
Seated with Christ
3. Living Under Grace
- New Status
- New Service
‘They try to do good of themselves in order that they might stand before God clothed in their own virtues and merits. But this is impossible. Among us you were one who held this opinion, or rather error. So was I, and I am still fighting against the error without having conquered it as yet.
Therefore, my dear brother, learn Christ and him crucified. Learn to pray to him and, despairing of your self say: ‘Thou, Lord Jesus, are my righteousness, but I am thy sin. Thou hast taken upon thyself what is mine and has given to me what is thine. Thou hast taken upon thyself what thou wast not and hast given to me what I was not.’

Ephesians 2:1–10 (Listen)
2:1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
