Luke 5:1-11 Peter had an epiphany by realizing who Jesus was, who Peter was, and the grace relationship that bonded them together. The impact of this event changed the course of his life.

Luke5:12-16, 27-33 Jesus healed and called the social outcasts.

Luke 5:17-26 Jesus forgave sins.

Luke 15:11-32 God loves and forgives you.

Ephesians one:

2 Grace is used 12 times in Ephesians -- verses 2, 6, 7; 2:2, 7, 8; 3:2, 7, 8; 4:7, 29; and 6:24

3 God's love is evident by the spiritual blessings He freely gives to us.

4 These blessings bestowed upon Christians are in accordance with an eternal purpose. They were not conferred by chance or haphazard. They were the result of intention and design on the part of God, and they come to us as the result of His everlasting plan. It was not a recent plan; it was not an afterthought; it was not by mere chance, nor was it caprice.

5 He predestined us to adoption as sons.

6 Grace has been freely bestowed on us in the beloved.

7 In Jesus Christ, we have redemption, the forgiveness of our trespasses.

8 Lavished with all wisdom and insight

9 Made known to us the mystery

11 Gave us an inheritance

13 Sealed us

14 Gave us a pledge

2:1-10 All this was done for us when we were dead in trespasses and sins. God loves you!
