Ephesians 2:1 and 2: Some wrongly conclude that at some point they went looking for God (Romans 3:10-12). God went looking for you (John 6:44). He found you when you were yet His enemy (Romans 5:10 and Colossians 1:21).
Ephesians 2:3-5: All of us were children of wrath and spiritually dead in sins when God demonstrated His great love for us by saving us. The Apostle Paul is a great example (I-Timothy 1:15 and 16). He is our pattern. Paul was not looking for Christ! He was Christ’s enemy (Acts 9:1, 2 and 13). He was not responding to, but kicking against the pricks of conviction by God’s Holy spirit (Acts 9:3-5). Paul did not look for Christ. Christ laid in wait and intercepted Paul on that road (Acts 9:3). Paul had no interest in Christ. Christ had an interest in Paul (Acts 22:20). Paul had no plans for Christ (Acts 22:3-5) Christ had plans for him (Acts 9:15 and 16).
Ephesians 2:6 and 7: God saves lowly undeserving sinners that He might showcase the exceeding riches of His grace.
If He saved the best of us He would showcase our works
He saved sinners to demonstrate His love (Romans 5:8).
God demonstrated the exceeding riches of His grace when He drew you (John 12:32) and convicted you (John 16:7 and 8), and when He saved you (Ephesians 2:8).
All the sinner must do is stop running and hiding from God.
God will do all the looking and finding (Revelation 3:20).
