The Riches of His Grace
A Sermon on Ephesians 1:7
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, (ESV)
How can the Apostle Paul be so exuberant in praise about the grace of God? Why is the grace of God something the Apostle constantly writes about? It is because he knew the grace of God; he experienced it. And it led to his worship and praise. In this sermon, Dr. Marytn Lloyd-Jones expounds Paul’s words on the riches of God’s grace. By better understanding God’s grace we get a glimpse into the very character of God. In the riches of God’s grace we see that he gives fully, freely and superabundantly. It can be no other way. He must give grace liberally because of who he is. Pastorally, Lloyd-Jones applies God’s grace to the Christian by highlighting our desperate need for it. Thankfully, his grace is sufficient for all our needs. Millions have drunk from it, yet it is still bubbling up, offering assurance for all who come and drink from it. The gracious and good news of the gospel is the free and full forgiveness for those who are in Christ Jesus according to the riches of God’s grace.
