Ephesians 2:12 (KJV)
That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
This chapter ends on an incredibly high note, but it begins with desperation. Before a person can ever appreciate where he is, he must appreciate from where he has come.
This verse bluntly says:
- You were without Christ
- You were without promise
- You were without hope
- You were without God
But by grace and through faith they had been saved. Because of that, they had been made part of the new man in Christ and had been included in the household of GOD and had been made to fit and to grow there.
The same is true of all who know Christ as Saviour.
