‘The unsearchable riches of Christ’ (Ephesians 3:8)
Never forget that Jesus is our Brother, and that He has devoted all His riches to us, so that the riches of Jesus are the Christian’s fortune. “Ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might be rich.”
He employed all He possessed for our redemption, sanctification, and salvation; and now, at the right hand of the Majesty on high, He gives liberally. He has riches of grace, riches of mercy, and riches of glory. The residue of the Spirit is with Him. He has promised great things; He has proved His readiness to bestow, in the most wonderful way; let us therefore expect great things from Him, for He has unsearchable riches.
O Christian believer, do not look at your poverty, at your wants, or your circumstances, but look at Jesus; all things are under His feet, all blessings are at His disposal, and His heart is set upon you to do you good!
He will supply all your needs while on earth, and afterwards receive you to glory. My soul, Jesus has all you need: therefore look to Him, and Him alone!
Possessing Christ, I all possess,
Strength, wisdom, sanctifying grace,
And righteousness complete:
Bold, in His name, I dare draw nigh,
Before the Ruler of the sky,
And all His justice meet.
