God’s Riches


          “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself” (Ephesians 1:9-11).

          God’s net worth is incalculable.

          In worldly terms, stating that He owes every beast of the forest, every wild animal in the field, all the birds of the mountains, and all the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10-11) is less than the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Of every planet, star, and galaxy He is the rightful owner. Other than the immortal soul created and given to him by God a man owns nothing; he is simply a steward whose stay upon this earth is like the brief life of a vapor.

          In heavenly wealth, Jehovah is the source and benefactor of every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3). Every good gift and every perfect gift come from Him and His spiritual treasury.

          In Christ, the exceeding riches of God’s grace abound (Ephesians 1:7, 2:7).

          In Christ, the innumerable riches of God’s manifold wisdom, understanding, and knowledge abound (Ephesians 1:7, 3:10; Romans 11:33).

          In Christ, the rich mercy and great love of God—its great width, length, depth, and height—are made known (Ephesians 2:4, 3:18).

          In Christ, the riches of God’s goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering are found (Romans 2:4).

          In Christ, the riches of God’s glory are available (Ephesians 1:10, 3:16; Romans 9:23).

          Oh, the unsearchable spiritual riches found in Christ (Ephesians 3:8)!
