Superlatives are my favorite types of words. They spice up a sentence and make things over-the-top and grand.
And it seems that Paul the Apostle loved a good superlative as well – for he often used them in reference to the grandeur of Christ or the richness of God’s grace.
In this expositional study in the book of Ephesians, Nathan Johnson (NRJohnson) examines Ephesians 1:7-8 and looks at the waterfall of grace that God has lavishly poured upon us in all wisdom and insight.
May we as Christians live under the downpour of God’s grace.

- Martyn Lloyd-Jones [on grace] – “This theme obviously filled the mind and the heart of this great Apostle. It was something that ravished his heart. As Philip Doddridge assures us, grace was to him ‘a charming sound, harmonious to the ear.’ It ravished [Paul’s] heart and moved his entire being. He never mentions “grace” without going into some kind of ecstasy. The word always calls forth his superlatives. It had so gripped him and amazed him and moved him that he could scarcely control himself.”
