That in the ages to come He might shew the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness towards us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.
Paul in his writing to the church at Ephesus was reminding the people of the magnitude of God's grace and His gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation is the work of God and His Son. That being said, man is rich in God's grace. Man's is to believe in Jesus Christ and receive the greatest gift that can and will ever be given-salvation. What a gift!
The gift of salvation is one that has stood through and will continue to stand through all the ages to come as it carries riches beyond comparison and can only be comprehended with a spiritual mind as revealed by God the Holy Spirit. The magnitude of God's grace is that mercy took the place of justice which was demanded for the punishment of sin, but thank God for His Son Jesus who took man's punishment. This was love in action and cannot be superseded by any other love as Jesus Christ became man's propitiator. What a propitiator!
Believers are rich in God's grace because of His Son's atoning work on Calvary of providing salvation so all who believes will spend eternity with Him.
God's grace what a rich gift to have.
