Ephesians 3:8-9 (JDV)
Ephesians 3:8 This favor was given to me– the least of all the devotees – to proclaim to the Gentiles the incalculable riches of Christ,
Ephesians 3:9 and to shed light for all about the commission of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things.
incalculable riches of Christ
There is a thrill that comes from exposing the truth of scripture to a life in darkness and desperate need. It is like bringing a gift which will rescue a family from a life of debt and fruitless labor. Paul is in prison, paying the price for this joy. Yet he still speaks of sharing the gospel as the incalculable riches of Christ – a favor that he has received.
Lord, thank you for enriching us with the incalculable riches of Christ. Show us how to share the wealth.
