today's reading.
Ephesians 2:1-10    And you were dead in the trespasses and sins...

think about it.
What was our "before" picture like (2:1-4)? What character traits moved God to act on our behalf (2:4-8)? How have you seen God give you mercy and grace?

the blog.
Definitely a well-known passage today with Ephesians 2:1-10. So I read these verses four or five times considering what God would have me take away and put into action. Each time I read the passage, certain descriptions and phrases about God and salvation gave me pause and got me thinking about just how amazing God is and how incredibly blessed I am (we are) to be part of His family. Here they are: "rich in mercy" (vs. 4), "great love" (vs. 5), "immeasurable riches of his grace" (vs. 7) and "gift of God" (vs. 8).

What from Ephesians 2:1-10 spoke to you today? What did you do or will you do as a result? Tami W.
