Rich grace can only come from a rich God. A Father that is rich toward his sons and daughters in the sense of giving without measure. There is no limit to his grace except in our ability to receive it. Whatever we may have faith to have we may have. How do we meter ‘lavished’ except by our gratitude and worship?
“In Ephesians 1:7-8, Paul says that we have redemption and forgiveness through Christ’s death, “in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.” We learned from this chapter of Ephesians that God’s grace is glorious (1:6). Now we see that it is rich and abundant. It’s not as if God has some little pile of grace that he doles out stingily. On the contrary, God’s pile is huge, and he doesn’t give it away in tiny portions. Rather, God “lavished” his grace on us. The Greek word translated here as “lavished” literally means “to cause to abound” or “to do something in great measure.” Rich grace, richly given … that’s what God has done through Christ.” Mark Roberts.
With our hearts open, and our hands open we try to grasp the generous grace giving Father.
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.” Jesus
