6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
God raising us up together with Jesus Christ is a show of grace (v6). Making us joint heirs with Christ is a show of grace. Every kindness and act of love that God shows us is grace. He shows us grace so that He might show us His riches that are unending in His kindness towards us (v7).
When asked how much water is in all of the oceans of the earth, someone once said that it is 3.612 x 10²º gallons of sea water in the ocean. That is 3.612 x 1 with 21 zeros. When asked how many stars are in the known universe? The Australian National University team of stargazers said that it is 70 sextillion (7 followed by 22 zeros). When asked how many grains of sand are in the world? Someone said that it is 7,500,000,000,000,000,000, or seven quintillion five hundred quadrillion grains of sand. Now the accuracy of these numbers is not my concern. They only show who much we cannot quantify the supply of water, stars and sand on earth. What more of the amount of grace from God?
We cannot quantify the grace of God; but we need faith in releasing it or having it activated in our lives. Nobody knows the actual quantity of water in this universe, but we continue to depend on its supply knowing that it is sufficient. The grace of God is much more available than the waters of the ocean. It is more reliable and God’s exceeding riches are more abundant.
Homework: Thank God for His unending supply of grace upon your life and that of your family.
