A Prelude To Grace (part 1)

October 6, 2019 Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Ephesians - The Church - A Mystery Revealed

Topic: The Church, The Grace of God Passage: Ephesians 2:1–2:3

Sermon Outline

In these verses, Paul gives three characteristics of our hopeless condition before Christ saved us by His grace. You were:

  1. A Dead Man Walking (2:1)
  2. A Doomed Man Walking (2:2)
  3. A Decadent Man Walking (2:3)

"The whole comes to this, that Christ, when he produces faith in us by the agency of his Spirit, at the same time ingrafts us into his body, that we may become partakers of all spiritual blessings." ~ John Calvin

“A spiritually dead person is alienated from God and alienated from life having no capacity to respond. They are spiritual zombies, the walking dead who do not know they are dead. They go through the motions of life, but they do not possess it.” ~ John MacArthur
