Ephesians 2:3 ” All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.”

No matter where you are in your Christian walk or how long you’ve been saved, the stark truth is – you once used to follow the ways of the world. You were unresponsive spiritually to the things of God…satisfying the desires of the flesh…disobedient and rebellious. At one time or another, we were all lost and doomed to God’s righteous judgment. And that’s what Paul is telling us here…we are just sinners saved by grace, and we can’t forget that, or become smug and prideful…especially when we interact with unbelievers. There is not one righteous among us…we are all beggars looking for bread.
