His Kindness Toward Us (Ephesians 2:4-7)

Introductory Thoughts

According to the Bible, before a man trusts Christ as Saviour, he remains the enemy of God (Romans 5:10; Colossians 1:21). But God, in His great mercy, saves His enemies as they individually choose to trust in Christ’s payment for their sins. Though a Christian has the indwelling Spirit, he never fully comprehends all that the Lord has done for him through salvation. This is why the Bible says that God’s love passes all knowledge (Ephesians 3:19). However, the more a man draws nigh to God, the more he learns about the kindness God has shown him through Jesus Christ. No matter how we learn in this life, eternity will continue to reveal to the saints the depths of the kindness of God. No wonder the greatness and marvellous nature of His love is truly beyond comprehension.

Devotional Thoughts

  • (For children): Name your favorite food, toy, shoes, etc. These things actually came as blessings from God. Ask your parents to explain how "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above" (James 1:17). Take a moment and contemplate Gods kindness.
  • (For everyone): How long would it take for others to figure out the depth of your kindness toward them? How complex is your kindness? Are you even kind to others?
  • Have you considered the kindness of God to us through the death of His Son? What are some things about your salvation that display Gods kindness toward you?

Prayer Thoughts

  • Ask the Lord to show you different ways in which He has been kind to you through His Son.
  • Take time to thank the Lord for what He has done for you.
