When Paul opened the second chapter of the letter to the Ephesians he painted a rather bleak picture of what the Ephesians had been before they were converted. He highlights the fact that they were dead in trespasses and sins (v1); walked according to the course of this world (v2), and according to the prince of the power of the air and the flesh (v3). They were by nature children of God’s wrath. It must have been gratifying to the Ephesians to be reminded of the fact that God has blessed them with every spiritual blessing in Christ (1:3).
