Why Must I Be Saved?

August 15, 2020 Speaker: James Revelino Series: So Great a Salvation

Passage: Ephesians 2:1–2:10

Scripture is replete with statements emphasizing that all men must be changed (regenerated) from within. (Jeremiah 24:7; Romans 2:29; 12:2; 2 Corinthians 7:10) This regeneration is an instantaneous act of God’s free grace by which He makes the spiritually dead to be spiritually alive. It is a make-or-break prerequisite for becoming a Christian, and its truth must be practical in our lives. Ephesians 2:11-22 shows us that it is the foundation for loving, godly relationships in Christ among Christians.

All that begs the question: Why must you be regenerated? The answer to that question lies in knowing first what you were saved from, and what your life before salvation really was.

Overview

  1. We were dead in sin. (Ephesians 2:1-3)
  2. We are regenerated. (Ephesians 2:4-6)
  3. We are benefactors of God’s Grace. (Ephesians 2:7-10)

Descriptions of Your Former Life

  1. The direction. (Ephesians 2:1-2)
  2. The desires. (Ephesians 2:3a)
  3. The destiny. (Ephesians 2:3b)
