  • What are you earliest reconciliations of Easter as a kid?
  • Read Ephesians 2:1-10
  • How does Paul explain being dead in our sins in verses 1-3? What do each of the descriptive phrases explain about our past condition?
  • The ultimate end is that we are considered “children of wrath.”  What does that mean? Is this concept difficult to talk about in our modern society?
  • What remedy do verses 4-6 give us for being dead in sin?
  • What can we do to keep sin from influencing our lives?
  • What do they verses tell us about God? Explain.
  • What do the verses implicitly say about what God saw in us that made us ‘worth’ saving? What do we ‘contribute’ toward our salvation?
  • Read verse 7 and explain it! What should be our response to this?
  • Explain the relationship of these words (8-9): Grace, Gift of God, Faith, Not of works.
  • In what way should the last phrase of verse 9 be evident in our lives?
  • What practical application can you make in response to these verses?


How can we use these verse to tell others about Jesus? 


Pray that God will help you apply this lesson.  Pray for any other requests you have.
