There are several portions of the Bible, for one reason or another, that stand out from among the rest. These passages are usually ones we would call “pillars of the faith.” Such is what the first ten verses are of Ephesians 2, in which the apostle Paul relays a gloriously grandiose picture of God’s colossal gospel.
The apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is one of the most important books in the entire Bible. It certainly contains, perhaps, the ten most significant verses in chapter 2. As Paul writes to encourage the church, he also writes to dismantle the false gospels that sneaked into the church. In Ephesians 2:1–10, Paul discloses God’s big picture of salvation by reveling in God’s cavernous grace.
