By grace you have been saved

Bible verse: 
Ephesians 2:4-9

But God…

On Sunday we soaked in God’s rich mercy and great love as we studied Ephesians 2: 4-9 together. We discovered that we are saved by grace through faith and that we did nothing to achieve this; it is the gift of God!

We defined God’s grace as when we do receive something that we do not deserve and we defined God’s mercy as what we get when we do not receive what we do deserve (i.e. his justice or wrath)

For discussion: 

In your groups this week why not spend time helping one another to become more dependent upon Jesus (and therefore less self-reliant).

  • We saw that faith is a gift; share your experiences of having to depend on God and the faith that He has gifted to you.
  • Spend some time worshiping God (how could you do anything else after reading such an amazing passage?
  • Pray for one another to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to be given the gift of faith.
