Eph. 2:4-7. “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
God’s grace redeems us, forgiving us of all our sins. God’s grace relieves our fears. God’s grace reassures us when we face danger. Now we learn that God’s grace rewards us eternally. What a glorious future awaits those who are the recipients of God’s grace. There is much that is good in this life. However, all of life’s treasures and possessions are temporal. They wear out, and they break, they rust, they decay. And even if they are still viable when life comes to an end, you must leave them all behind.
God’s amazing grace brings us blessings that will last forever. God’s grace is good to live by and good to die by. When we have entered into eternity, God plans to show us the exceeding riches of His grace in the ages to come. He intends to shower us with His kindness for all eternity. The troubles we endure in this life will fade away in the brightness of eternity.
Gracious God, What can I say but “Thank You” for Your amazing grace, which blesses me in this life and will bless me even more in eternity. Praise be unto You for Your great love. In Jesus’ name, Amen
