VIDEO Burst Balloon – Three Scenes of Ephesians 3

The unsearchable riches of Christ.  Ephesians 3:8

One day last winter when Ruth Balloon got off work, she decided to check her bank account balance on her smartphone. She couldn’t believe her eyes. She had over $37 million. She knew it must be an error; but like all of us, Ruth began thinking about what she would do with the money. “First I was going to do 10% tithing. Then I was going to donate some money and then I would have invested in real estate.” Alas! It was indeed a banking blunder, and the bank took it all back. Ruth has nothing more than a screen shot of her balance to remind her of the day when she was momentarily a multi-millionaire. [1]

When we receive Jesus Christ, He erases our debt, and He deposits into our account the unsearchable riches of Christ. On this planet, Jesus lavishes His grace on us, and He places the Holy Spirit in our heart as a down payment and guarantee of the eternal wealth we’ll enjoy in heaven.

We can be confident God will do what He says. The heavenly bank makes no mistakes, the treasuries of heaven are inexhaustive, and our Heavenly Father is faithful to fulfill His promissory notes.

The kingdom of heaven is worth infinitely more than the cost of discipleship.

D. A. Carson
