GOD'S GREAT LOVE VI (THE UNSEARCHABLE RICHES OF CHRIST)
To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ;
Ephesians 3:8-9 NKJV
There is a mighty treasury of mercy, grace, and love, laid up in Christ Jesus, and that both for Jews and Gentiles. Or, the riches of the gospel are here spoken of as the riches of Christ: the riches which Christ purchased for, and bestows upon, all believers. And they are unsearchable riches, which we cannot find the bottom of, which human sagacity could never have discovered, and men could no otherwise attain to the knowledge of them but by revelation. Now it was the apostle's business and employment to preach these unsearchable riches of Christ among the Gentiles: and it was a favor Paul greatly valued, and looked upon it as an unspeakable honor to him.
It is an unspeakable favor to the Gentile world that to them the unsearchable riches of Christ are preached. Paul's business and employment were to make all men see (to publish and make known to the whole world) what is the fellowship of the mystery (that the Gentiles who have hitherto been strangers to the church, shall be admitted into communion with it) which from the beginning of the world had been hid in God (kept secret in his purpose), who created all things by Jesus Christ. The unending (boundless, fathomless, incalculable, and exhaustless) riches of Christ (wealth which no human being could have searched out), come to us exclusively by and through the sacrifice of Jesus.
Through the sacrifice of Jesus, I enjoy the unsearchable riches of Christ. I see what is the fellowship of the mystery. In Jesus' Name!
