The Unsearchable Riches of Christ
Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, Ephesians 3:8.
Probably one of the greatest differences in the new versions over a King James Bible is that they are finitely searchable. There is no depth to them. Carrying one is like taking a vacuous blonde to your class reunion. She looks impressive until someone actually talks to her and finds out how truly hollow she is. I'm reminded of Charles II's observation of his brother in law, Prince George of Denmark; "I've tried him drunk and I've tried him sober and there is just nothing to the man".
One of the wonders of the King James Bible is that it is unsearchable. No matter how long you study it, and no matter how long you cross reference, it always leads you to new truths which in turn lead to new revelations. I have no doubt that if the readers of this blog should assemble to reminisce one trillion years from now, none of us will have exhausted the depths of our bible. We would rejoice as one by one, we recounted the depths of Christ that we have seen in the pages of that book.
It was King David who said, Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore, Psalms 16:11. If when we are ushered into the presence of Jesus Christ, we are filled with infinite knowledge, we would eventually become bored. Instead, there are pleasures for ever more. That is a difficult verse to believe. I have found pleasure in many things in life, but with many of those things, they wore thin. I no longer found pleasure therein. I am assured that this great study that I commenced upon so many years ago will never end. I will have pleasure in the unsearchable riches of Christ forevermore. I will use my King James Bible through eternity.
