In Ephesians 2, Paul reminded his readers of who they once were, what God has done, and what follows from it. Alistair Begg explains that from God’s initiating work to the believer’s response, salvation hinges upon the phrase, “In Christ Jesus.” When we have entered into this vital, organic relationship with Christ, our identity is hidden in Him, we rest in His complete security, and our mentality will be governed by His loving law.
13But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
