EPH 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.

LUK 15:20 So he got up and went to his father. "But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
PENALTY FOR OUR SINFULLNESS EPH 2:1-3
EPH 2:1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
ROM 6:23a For the wages of sin is death,...
EPH 2:2 in 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.
EPH 2:3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.
PROVISION FOR OUR SALVATION EPH 2:4-9
EPH 2:4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
EPH 2:5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved.
EPH 2:6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,
HEB 10:11 Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
HEB 10:12 But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God.
EPH 2:7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
EPH 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--
EPH 2:9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
PREPARATION FOR OUR SERVICE EPH 2:10
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
