Ephesians Chapter 2 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 You were made alive when you were dead in transgressions and sins,
  • 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience;
  • 3 among whom we also all once lived in the lust of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
  • 4 But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us,
  • 5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
  • 6 and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
  • 7 that in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus;
  • 8 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
  • 9 not of works, that no one would boast.
  • 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them.
  • Open English Bible [OEB]
  • 1 You yourselves were once dead because of your offenses and sins.
  • 2 For at one time you lived in sin, following the ways of the world, in subjection to the Ruler of the powers of the air – the Spirit who is still at work among the disobedient.
  • 3 And it was among them that we all once lived our lives, indulging the cravings of our earthly nature, and carrying out the desires prompted by that earthly nature and by our own thoughts. Our nature exposed us to the divine wrath, like the rest of humanity.
  • 4 Yet God, in his abundant compassion, and because of the great love with which he loved us,
  • 5 even though we were dead because of our offenses, gave life to us in giving life to the Christ. (By God’s loving kindness you have been saved.)
  • 6 And, through our union with Christ Jesus, God raised us with him, and caused us to sit with him on high,
  • 7 in order that, by his goodness to us in Christ Jesus, he might display in the ages to come the boundless wealth of his loving kindness.
  • 8 For it is by God’s loving kindness that you have been saved, through your faith. It is not due to yourselves; the gift is God’s.
  • 9 It is not due to obedience to Law, so that no one can boast.
  • 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created, by our union with Christ Jesus, for the good actions in doing which God had pre-arranged that we should spend our lives.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obiendience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
