To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, Ephesians 3:8
If you were with us yesterday, you know that this is day two of pondering these unfathomable riches we have in Jesus!
Romans 8:15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”
Galatians 4:5-7…in order that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons, and if a son, then an heir through God.
Romans 3:22…even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe…
1 Corinthians 1:30 But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus…
2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.
1 Peter 2:5…you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood…
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
Ephesians 2:18…for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
Ephesians 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are God’s fellow workers…
Ephesians 2:19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household,
Ephesians 5:8…for you were formerly darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light.
Ephesians 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Colossians 2:10…and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority;
I’m speechless and in awe of our great Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! He is the reason we can with joyful hearts celebrate this Thanksgiving, offering Him all the praise, glory and thanksgiving we can give to Him who deserves it all!
The Dillard Family wishes each of you a beautiful, joy filled, Thanksgiving!
Personal Application: Pray over and claim each of these riches.
Home Application: Read them out loud and thank God for each and every one of them.
How will knowing these unfathomable riches you have in Christ Jesus change the way you celebrate this Thanksgiving?
