Ephesians 2:3-14

NCV 3 In the past all of us lived like them, trying to please our sinful selves and doing all the things our bodies and minds wanted. We should have suffered God's anger because of the way we were. We were the same as all other people. NIV 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. NCV 4 But God's mercy is great, and he loved us very much. NIV 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, NCV 5 Though we were spiritually dead because of the things we did against God, he gave us new life with Christ. You have been saved by God's grace. NIV 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. NCV 6 And he raised us up with Christ and gave us a seat with him in the heavens. He did this for those in Christ Jesus NIV 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, NCV 7 so that for all future time he could show the very great riches of his grace by being kind to us in Christ Jesus. NIV 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. NCV 8 I mean that you have been saved by grace through believing. You did not save yourselves; it was a gift from God. NIV 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— NCV 9 It was not the result of your own efforts, so you cannot brag about it. NIV 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. NCV 10 God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing. NIV 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. NCV 11 You were not born Jewish. You are the people the Jews call "uncircumcised." Those who call you "uncircumcised" call themselves "circumcised." (Their circumcision is only something they themselves do on their bodies.) NIV 11 Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— NCV 12 Remember that in the past you were without Christ. You were not citizens of Israel, and you had no part in the agreementsn with the promise that God made to his people. You had no hope, and you did not know God. NIV 12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. NCV 13 But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away from God are brought near through the blood of Christ's death. NIV 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. NCV 14 Christ himself is our peace. He made both Jewish people and those who are not Jews one people. They were separated as if there were a wall between them, but Christ broke down that wall of hate by giving his own body. NIV 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,
