The Riches of God’s Grace

There are marvelous blessings available for each child of God—today.

Ephesians 1:1-14

Imagine an elderly couple living in a dilapidated farmhouse. They can barely afford a few groceries and the medications they need. There isn’t even enough money to keep the heat on all winter. Shortly after they both die, a huge deposit of oil is discovered on the old homestead. All their years of poverty were lived out sitting on top of untapped wealth.

Sadly, many Christians go through life like that elderly couple. They’ve distilled Christianity down to its most basic parts: God saved me, and someday I’ll go to heaven. Spiritually poor Christians fail to tap into the reservoir of God’s grace that’s available right now. There’s no reason to wait until heaven to start enjoying the riches of His favor, which He’s already lavishing on us.

True riches are not measured by your bank account but by the abundance of God’s grace. You’ve received Christ’s righteousness, forgiveness of sins, adoption as God’s child, the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit, and an eternal inheritance. As a joint heir with Christ, you have access to God’s riches, which include unspeakable joy, unconditional love, and peace beyond understanding. Don’t wait until heaven; tap into these divine blessings every day of your life, beginning today.
