Rich Grace

Do you know who is the richest person in the world? Often newspapers and magazines will publish a list of the richest people in the world. Many names on the list change, but some wealthy people are always at the top of the list.

I don’t know who is the richest person in the world. But I do know that if you are a Christian, you are one of the wealthiest people on earth. You are wealthy in God’s love and grace. You may not have earthly treasures like silver and gold, but you do have Jesus as your Savior. The blessings that we receive from God cannot be bought with money, but they are the most wonderful blessings of all.

Paul talked about these blessings when he wrote a letter to Christians in the city of Ephesus. In Ephesians 1:7-8a he talked about the blessing of God’s grace. “In Christ we are made free by his blood sacrifice. We have forgiveness of sins because of God’s rich grace. God gave us that grace fully and freely.”

As you go through this day, think about the wonderful blessings God has given to you. Remember that His rich grace sent Jesus to earth to die for your sins. Thank God and praise Him today!
