The unsearchable riches of Christ!
"The unsearchable riches of Christ!" Ephesians 3:8
My Master has riches —
beyond the eloquence of words
beyond the dream of imagination,
beyond the count of arithmetic, and
beyond the measurement of reason!
They are unsearchable! You may look, and study, and weigh, but when your thoughts are at the greatest — Jesus is a greater Savior than you think Him to be. My Lord is more ready to pardon — than you to sin; more able to forgive — than you to transgress. My Master is more willing to supply your needs — than you are to ask for them!
Never tolerate low thoughts of my Lord Jesus. When you put the crown on His head, you will only crown Him with silver, when He deserves gold.
My Master has riches of happiness to bestow upon you now. He can make you to lie down in green pastures, and lead you beside still waters. There is no love like His, neither earth nor Heaven can match it. To know Christ and to be found in Him — oh! this is life, this is joy, this is marrow and fatness, wine on the lees well refined!
My Master does not treat His servants churlishly — He gives to them as a king gives to a king! He gives them two Heavens: a Heaven below in serving Him here — and a Heaven above in delighting in Him forever!
His unsearchable riches will be best known in eternity. He will give you all that you need on the way to Heaven — your place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks, your bread shall be given you, and your waters shall be sure. But it is there, THERE, where you shall hear the song of those who triumph, the shout of those who feast, and shall have a face-to-face view of the glorious and beloved One! The unsearchable riches of Christ! This is the tune for the minstrels of earth, and the song for the harpers of heaven!
