Ephesians 2:7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.


Greg smiling

So that in the coming ages, that is the years to come in which God makes an end of sin to them who are the called. The years of time cannot exhaust the immeasurable riches of His Grace. He might show the exceeding riches of his grace,  riches being added to grace, denote the value of it, as well as its abundance; and also the fact it is free and by the grace of God in giving it. God’s riches are exceeded; they exceed the riches of this world, in the immenseness of them, being unsearchable; and inexhaustible.  For though such large treasures have been expended upon such numbers of persons, yet there is still the same quantity;  in the duration of them, they last forever; and to the profit and satisfaction to whom they are  yielding. When other riches fade away, where moths corrupt and are not profitable nor satisfying; and they outlive the mortality of men. Not only are God’s riches, immeasurable,  they are individual to each our needs, from the use of our gifts to the teaching of God’s word. It reaches the preachers in the pews, to the nursery worker. It comforts the sick and convicts the healthy. His immeasurable rich are at work when we don’t even realize it. If you could gather up the entirety of mans riches from Genesis to now it would be but a drop in God’s ocean of immeasurable riches. If you could turn all the mountain’s to gold there value would pale in worth compared to the immeasurable riches of God. It is an appropriate  time of the year to reflect on the riches of God. This time of year when we celebrate Thanksgiving. And let us be reminded this year of the immeasurable riches towards us in Christ Jesus.
