Ephesians 3: 1-6
God revealed to Paul the unimaginable secret never disclosed to past generations…that Jesus saves Gentiles as well as Jews when they accept Him! I am so very thankful! What other marvelous secrets might God have?
Ephesians 3: 7-11
God priviledged Paul to tell the Gentiles about His hidden plan of salvation and the riches in Jesus. He purposed that through His body of believers, His great wisdom would be revealed to all in heaven, including all principalities and powers in heaven. This is just as He planned.
Ephesians 3: 12-13
Because of Jesus and our faith in Him, we are free to approach Almighty God with confidence and without fear! So do not lose heart or fear when persecuted or in trouble.
Ephesians 3: 14-21
This is another good prayer that we can also use in praying to the Father for ourself and others. That He may grant us that…
- we be strengthened and reinforced with Holy Spirit power in our inner man
- that through our faith and trust in Christ Jesus, He would abide in our heart and we would be rooted deep, and founded securely in His love.
- that we would grab hold and experience His love…its full length, breadth, and depth
- that we would really come to know Jesus and His love, beyond mere knowledge that He loves, but actually experience Him…to be richly filled in all our being with God Himself and the fullest measure of His presence
- that as a consequence of being fully filled with God Himself by His Holy Spirit, His power would superabundantly work in us for His purposes…far above what we would even ask or think….infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, and dreams)
To Father, Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit be the glory forever and ever! Amen!
