Verses:

 

Eph. 2:7 “That He might display in the ages to come the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”

 

Excerpts:

 

According to Ephesians, salvation is the transmission of the incarnated, crucified, resurrected, and ascended Christ into us. Once we receive such a divine transmission, we are made alive, raised up, and seated with Christ in the heavenlies. Therefore, in Ephesians grace is the saving person of Christ Himself. This is a deeper understanding of salvation by grace. For God to be transmitted into us as grace, He had to be processed through incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. God processed and transmitted into our being is the saving grace and the abounding grace. We have been saved by the transmission of this processed God.

 

This grace has surpassing riches. It has many aspects, virtues, and attributes, such as life, light, and power. Apart from life, light, and power, God cannot save us. For example, how can you rescue a person who has fallen into a pit if you do not have the strength to lift him out? Furthermore, if you do not have love for him, you will not bother to save him. In order to save us, God needed love and wisdom. These are some of the surpassing riches of God’s saving grace. In His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus, God has saved us by His grace. In the ages to come—in the millennium and eternity future—God will display this grace publicly to the whole universe. (Life-study of Ephesians, msg. 21)
