Searching for Unsearchable Riches

March 19, 2023 Erin Davis

This grace was given to me . . . to proclaim to the Gentiles the incalculable riches of Christ. —Ephesians 3:8

When we consider the treasures that are ours in Christ, we will keep digging and digging instead of letting our attention spans drive us, and we will always discover more of Him along the way.

There may be a million different ways for us to do so.

• The next time you open your Bible, set a thirty-minute timer. Force yourself to stay focused until the bell dings.
• Pick a passage and make twenty-five observations, then twenty-five more, and twenty-five more.
• Block time on your calendar that’s untouchable to email and texting. Start with once a week and then expand.

The method isn’t as important as the goal: to wade past a shallow spiritual walk into the deep heart of God.

I want us to dwell in the Word of God so we can find the depth of God. I long for us to discover life beyond the shallows because we have searched and sat and dug; we have found the deep things of God.

Make it Personal

Pick one of the methods above and try it this week as you spend time in God’s Word.
