Unfathomable Riches
Ephesians 3:8

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ,” Ephesians 3:8 NASB

Awestruck by the greatness of God’s grace and his own unworthiness, Paul declares that he is the least of all God’s people. While Paul seemingly sees himself as a humble nobody, he is overwhelmed by the privilege God gave him to preach the gospel of grace to the Gentiles, to proclaim salvation in Christ to all non-Jewish people. Paul is overcome by the unfathomable, unsearchable, unmeasurable riches of Christ. The depth and breadth of Christ’s mercy, grace, and love cannot begin to be calculated.

Lord Jesus, I too am awed by Your great grace and by how You saved a wretch like me. Help me to boldly shout out to all people Your endless amazing grace!
