Ephesians 2:1-3

1 You were once dead because of your failures and sins.
2 You followed the ways of this present world and its spiritual ruler. This ruler continues to work in people who refuse to obey God.
3 All of us once lived among these people, and followed the desires of our corrupt nature. We did what our corrupt desires and thoughts wanted us to do. So, because of our nature, we deserved God's anger just like everyone else.
