Pristine Grace

Eph 2:1-22, (LITV)
1  and you being dead in deviations and sins,
2  in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit now working in the sons of disobedience,
3  among whom we also all conducted ourselves in times past in the lusts of our flesh, doing the things willed of the flesh and of the understanding, and were by nature the children of wrath, even as the rest.
4  But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
5  even we being dead in deviations, He made us alive together with Christ (by grace you are being saved),
6  and raised us up together and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,
7  that He might demonstrate in the ages coming on, the exceeding great riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
8  For by grace you are saved, through faith, and this not of yourselves; it is the gift of God;
9  not of works, that not anyone should boast;
10  for we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God before prepared that we should walk in them.
11  Because of this, remember that you, the nations, were then in the flesh (those having been called Uncircumcision by those having been called Circumcision in the flesh made by hands)
12  that at that time you were without Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers of the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
13  But now, in Christ Jesus you who then were afar off, came to be near by the blood of Christ.
14  For He is our peace, He making us both one, and breaking down the middle wall of partition,
15  in His flesh causing to cease the enmity, the Law of the commandments in decrees, that He might in Himself create the two into one new man, making peace,
16  and might reconcile both in one body to God through the cross, slaying the enmity in Himself.
17  And coming, He proclaimed "peace to you, the ones afar off, and to the ones near." Isa. 57:19
18  For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
19  So, then, you are no longer strangers and tenants, but you are fellow citizens of the saints and of the family of God,
20  being built up on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the cornerstone,
21  in whom all the building being fitted together grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
22  in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
