Ephesians 2:12 – What was life like before hope?

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 41:17‐43:13, Ephesians 2:1‐22, Psalm 67:1‐7, Proverbs 23:29‐35

Context: Paul is clearly explaining that we are saved by grace through faith in Christ.

Ephesians 2:12 “…remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.”

Observations:

  • Remember
    • You were separated from Christ
    • You were not included in the covenants of promise
    • You had no hope
    • You were without God in the world

Christians, have you forgotten where you would be without grace?

Apply: I want to spend time over the next 24 hours remembering what life was like before I was saved by grace through faith in Christ.  I never want the incredible hope I have to be taken for granted.

When was the last time you considered life without the hope we have in Jesus?
