What Does Ephesians 2:7 Mean?

so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:7(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

The salvation of the sinner is evidence of the abounding and overflowing riches of God’s amazing grace towards the children of men, and this salvation will stand as a witness in the eternal ages to come, of the undeniable proof, to both men and angels - to the creature and to the creation, of the inexhaustible and unsearchable riches of God’s grace towards those who have been saved by His blood.

Whatever else falls and fades away, the salvation of the saints will remain as an everlasting monument of God’s never-ending mercy, through time and into eternity. No matter what ceases from view and no matter what is blotted out from our memories, the exceeding riches of God’s amazing grace in His kindness towards us, through Christ Jesus our Lord, will stand firm as an everlasting memorial of God’s astonishing grace and His unconditional love.

Our elevated position, our heavenly possession and our redeemed person are trophies of the incredible kindness that God has shown to each of His blood-bought children, in saving us by grace through faith in the sacrificial offering of the Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary’s cross. Our very lives will stand as a sure testimony of God’s great goodness, and we will remain a never-ending tribute in the eternal ages to come of God’s grace and kindness towards us – in Christ Jesus.

No matter what is taken away or what additional joys are bestowed upon us all, our great salvation will stand firm as the singular, timeless testimonial of the divine goodness of our God towards us, and we will become a perpetual demonstration of the incomparable and exceeding riches of God’s amazing grace, which has been expressed in His kindness towards us in.. Christ Jesus our Lord.

My Prayer

Loving Father I am astonished at the abounding and overflowing riches of God’s amazing grace, which for so long I have taken for granted. Thank You that I will be one of the myriad of voices that will be singing Your praises and standing as a witness to Your amazing grace and unconditional love for me, a sinner, saved by grace. Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
