Power From Above
Power to Save 
(Ephesians 2:1-10)
How can I experience God’s life changing power?

What special gift have you received recently?
[Read Ephesians 2:1-10]
Understanding The Need For God’s Power  (vv. 1-3)

  1. What phrases does Paul use in describing what the Christians in Ephesus were like before Christ?  Why do you think Paul reminded these people what their lives were like before Christ?  
  1. How might your life “before Christ” compare to the descriptions Paul gives?  Why?
    How does knowing that you have been saved from these things make you feel?

Receive God’s Power Through Faith In Christ  (vv. 4-9)

  1. From these verses, what was life for the Ephesians like after they began to follow Christ by faith?  What are some benefits of a life lived with Christ that you didn’t experience before you came to follow Christ
  1. Is anyone “good enough” to earn salvation?
  2. What does it mean to respond in faith (v. 8)?   Why do you think some Christians feel obligated to work their way to God even after they have been given the gift of salvation through Christ.

  3. Why do you think people have difficulty understanding that salvation is a free gift?  Why might “salvation by works” look appealing to some?

Apply God’s Power  (Ephesians 2:10)

  1. Verses 8 – 9 tell us that works do not save us; what does verse 10 add to that truth?  Why should a Christian want to do good works?
  1. What is the significance of the phrase “prepared in advance for us to do”?  How does knowing you are God’s workmanship (i.e. His masterpiece!) make you feel?


Care & Prayer – How can we help you through prayer today?


  • Do you need to place your trust (faith) in Christ and receive the gift of salvation?  (Talk to your Table Leader)


  • If you are saved, how might God be at work in your life?


  • Who are those you know that need Christ?
