The Riches of God’s Grace


Scripture: Ephesians 1:7

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.”


Thought for the Day: How do you define riches and what measurements do you use to define them? Most people define riches as the value of a person’s material wealth. Someone else might define it as one’s net worth. To keep this 100, the average definition is ‘all that a person or a family has.’ As a result of this mindset, we pursue earthly wealth with the hope of gaining riches. Even as we prosper in the natural, God has a given us riches by His grace through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The riches of God’s grace are far beyond the material riches this world offers. This grace is His gift that we cannot purchase and do not deserve.  He has offered us the eternal riches of His grace in Jesus Christ our Lord! They are far more valuable than any wealth we can earn through our labor or investments. The richness of this grace was given by God when He sent Jesus, His only begotten Son, to shed His blood and to die for our sins. No measure of riches or success in this life compares to the riches of God’s grace in your life. This grace is God’s unmerited favor that He pours out to a sinner that is condemned to death. God’s grace amazingly saves a sinner when the person confesses their sins and calls upon the name of the Lord. So the riches of God’s grace have immeasurable value because they were purchased with the blood of Jesus on the cross at Calvary. Through His ultimate sacrifice, we have redemption through His blood.

Therefore, as we live for Jesus, we must live as believers who have received the riches and live in the riches of His grace.

It’s Time to Pray: Lord Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice on the cross for me. I am saved from my sins by the blood of Jesus according to the riches of Your grace. I am rich in You. Thank You Jesus, Amen!
