    Ephesians 2:1-22
    Alive with Christ
    1And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    One in Christ
    11Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

    A Temple in the Lord
    19Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

    His grace is the power that takes us from our sinful natures and into His divine nature. walking by grace is to walk even as He walked. We overcome this world through abiding in Him...which is by grace through faith.

    That is our salvation from this world and the lusts thereof. Only a walk in Zion through the Spirit can keep us unspotted from this world.

    You forget grace is not standalone. It is dependent on faith, that word you not like.
    Ephesians 2:8 New International Version (NIV)
    8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—

    Grace indeed. We would not even be here if it were not via His Grace!

    Grace to live by, grace to work, grace to understand what we read of Him in the word .. we enter in, by grace we are saved through faith....

    Grace to live and also faith to die with.
    I did say to my hubby yesterday when we were talking about something..
    "When my time comes, I will probably 'argue the point' if I don't see angels. I will probably say- " sorry, not dying now, my angels are not here, so this can't be the right day." :)

    Grace= Power power of God within us to do what we can't do.
