This portion of Ephesians reminds us over and over about the ‘us’ and ‘we’ in the church. The church was multi-cultural and having problems as times ‘getting along.’ The church then and the church today is reminded that nothing we do, or say, or did or didn’t did keeps us away from God’s Grace – His Grace is for each and every one of us. Now let’s get over it and remember that we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works. Most people focus on verses 8/9, “For it is by grace we are saved” and forget verse 10, “Our good works don’t make us right with God.” Verse 10 says it’s because of God we do good works so others will have the opportunity to open their hearts to Jesus.
