What Does Ephesians 2:4 Mean?

But God, who is abundant in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us,

Ephesians 2:4(HCSB)

Verse Thoughts

I doubt that we will ever fathom the depths of God’s love for us, for His love is infinite and we are finite. But nonetheless the love of God is rich in mercy towards us, who were born dead in trespasses and sins.

The love of God is one of His many intrinsic attributes, for in and of Himself God is love, but when this inherent characteristic of God’s love is demonstrated towards humanity, it exhibits itself in mercy and grace, kindness and compassion.

It is because of the immeasurable length, eternal breadth, incalculable height and abundant depth of God’s love that He demonstrated His love towards us by means of His grace and mercy - for He sent His only begotten Son to die for us, so that we might live eternally.

But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead.

Never forget, it is only by God's grace that you and I have been saved! Salvation is the gift of God, it can NEVER be gained by our works, so that no one can boast.

My Prayer

Thank You Father that You are a God of love Who is rich in mercy towards me that You send Your precious Son to die in my place and pay the price for my sins – Praise Your name for ever and ever, AMEN.
