  1. Salvation By Grace! Acts 9: 1-19 Ephesians 2:1-10 Sermon by Rev: M.H Maluleka 30 March 2014

  2. Ephesians 2:1-10 (Text: NIV) 1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,

  3. 7in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

  4. Introduction! • Paul’s message of Justification by faith to the Romans, is the similar message to the Ephesians. - It is a call to relying on God’s love for our salvation and not depending on their own effort in trying to keep the law. - It is the same theme that runs through the book of Galatians! SALVATION IS BY GRACE AND NOT BY KEEPINT THE LAW! • Three important STATIONS in our lives!
