Superlatives

Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 3 (day four)
When Paul describes the Savior, he always uses superlatives.  Verse 8 says, “…the unfathomable riches of Christ.”  Verse 10 says, “…the manifold wisdom of God.”  Verse 11 says, “…the eternal purpose carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord,”  Verse 16 says, “…the riches of His glory,”  Verse 19 says, “…the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge.”  Verse 20 says, “…who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think.”  How can you describe Christ without using superlatives?  Maybe you are a creative thinker…maybe you are a person of great vision…of great dreams.  Verse 20 says that no matter how lofty our thoughts may be, they do not even approach the thoughts of the Lord… “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.”  Let’s ask God to cause His thoughts to be our thoughts…for our eyes to see as He sees.
