Notes & Transcripts
Story of the man pumping water! The water was moving him. One author points out that we can’t expect to be this passive in our Christian life, but we do need to realize that the Christian life is a supernatural experience.
We must need to realize and rely on God to live this life.
Paul told Timothy in the early verses of 2 Timothy. Do not be ashamed about the Testimony of Christ Jesus or of me his prisoner. Instead, share in suffering for the Gospel, RELYING ON GOD’S POWER.
In the book of Ephesians Paul spends the first three chapters talking about our blessings IN Christ, and beginning in chapter 4 he shares how to live out or faith. in light of who we are in Christ. Today we are going to look at the connecting verses where Paul tells them at the end of chapter 3 how he prays for them.
Ephesians 3:16–21 HCSB
I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit, and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us— to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
“empowered with power”
Ephesians 3:16 HCSB
I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit,
“know the unknowable”
Ephesians 3:17–19 HCSB
and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
“Filled with fullness”
Ephesians 3:19 HCSB
and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Yes! God will give you the power to live out your faith. In good times and in bad.
God wants you to know of His love for you that goes beyond your storms, your sin, and yourself.
God wants you to keep walking with Him, keep relying on Him, keep getting to know Him, keep obeying Him, keep making much of Him. He wants to fill you with all He has for you.
The Christian life is not one with obstacles. But it acompanied by a promise that God is ABLE!!!
Ephesians 3:20–21 HCSB
Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us— to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
