Ephesians 3

For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,

If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

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;

And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

  1. so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]; and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself].
    EPHESIANS 3:17‭-‬19 AMP

    When being rooted and grounded in love, you no longer desire to continue living in bondage!! There is a renewed life. A life worth living in obedience to bring glory and honor to His Holy name❤

  2. We can give thanks for living in a time when we have the entire written word and do not have to struggle with the mysteries of God’s plan. Moreover verse 16 reassures us that we do not need to rely on our own strenght to fulfill the Word’s commandments, because the Holy Spirit will strengthen are inner man.

  3. 4-6 As you read over what I have written to you, you’ll be able to see for yourselves into the mystery of Christ. None of our ancestors understood this. Only in our time has it been made clear by God’s Spirit through his holy apostles and prophets of this new order. The mystery is that people who have never heard of God and those who have heard of him all their lives (what I’ve been calling outsiders and insiders) stand on the same ground before God. They get the same offer, same help, same promises in Christ Jesus. The Message is accessible and welcoming to everyone, across the board. (MSG)

    The statement that Paul makes here in verses 4-6 is the very thing that many apostolics take for granted. We have the luxury of having the gospel preached to us when we sit on a pew and we have a tendency to become spiritual gluttons. I not saying that it is wrong to get all the church, preaching, and the glory of God as you can, but the mentality of the people is that as long as we are in the house of God we will see revival if it’s the will of God. To many are comfortable with containing God inside the four walls of the church building and not taking him with them as they go out. Many are comfortable with maintaining the status quo.

    We can not afford the opportunity to pass to be a witness for Jesus. We have to get focused on the outside mentality of church to start witnessing the goodness of Jesus. Scripture states the he called us to be witnesses of him.

    Acts 1:7-8 states in the NLT-
    7He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know. 8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

    If we have the Holy Ghost then we will be his witnesses in Jerusalem (which is the city of Fort Worth), throughout Judea (which is Tarantino County), in Samaria (which is the great state of Texas), and to the ends of the earth (which is the whole world).

    It’s not the insider mentality but the outside mentality that Jesus commands us to have when expecting revival. It’s not going to be a revival of the church but the unchurched that don’t know the truth. If we are to seek first the kingdom then we need to be about Jesus, because he is about people and if we want God’s will to be in our life then we need to be about those he wants us to witness to.

    Remember if we will go and get the ones nobody wants, he will begin to bring in the ones everybody wants. The outsider mentality.

    I live the kingdom!

  4. 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    We should build a strong and durable foundation in the Lord and be rooted deep like a tree planted by the water. We start off as a seed and the more we pour into our lives and feed ourselves with the light of God the more we grow. We break the barriers that contain us much like a seeds shell and start to root ourselves a little deeper. Love helps growth and learning how to love ourselves and others help with that growth. We start out small but after time we get bigger and stronger! We go through the seasons of life and change with each season but with each one we gain knowledge and get a little stronger.
    “For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭14:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    Be blessed and grow and maintain those strong roots.

    First the Kingdom!

  5. Ephesians 3:6-7 (msg)
    6) The mystery is that people who have never heard of God and those who have heard of him all their lives (what I’ve been calling outsiders and insiders) stand on the same ground before God. They get the same offer, same help, same promises in Christ Jesus. The Message is accessible and welcoming to everyone, across the board.
    7) This is my life work: helping people understand and respond to this Message. It came as a sheer gift to me, a real surprise, God handling all the details.

    “First the Kingdom”
    This should be our life’s work too – to “GO” help people understand and respond to this Message, the Good News, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    We are to “GO” and teach (St. Matt. 28:19-20
    We are to “GO” and preach (St. Mark 16:15)
    We are to “GO” and witness (Acts 1:8)

  6. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
    Ephesians 2:19‭-‬22 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/eph.2.19-22.KJV

    So we are no longer out side looking inside, we have the very same access to Repentance, To the Holy Ghost, To Baptism in Jesus name! But it’s the choice we ha e to make. we dont have the excuse ohh this dont apply to me! It does! But God isn’t going to give us any privileges of Marraige until we first become his bride! Hes not a God of fornication! So we must be married first! When we become part of the fold, By beleif, Repentance. Baptism in the Name of Jesus, Baptism of Fire then we are part of the Family only then, other wise we are just looking! I’m not trying to keep peepin! I’m trying to be all at the feet of Jesus!

  7. 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    Man’s first sin was not because of an outer source making him eat of the tree it was giving up on the internal battle that is on the inside. While Satan is surely at work against us he is not our greatest enemy. It is our thoughts and imaginations and deceptive hearts that cause us to fall away and make bad decisions. The more we become grounded in Christ The closer we get to winning that enter battle. Man’s greatest downfall was trusting himself and allowing the inner Man to give up and a surrender to the circumstances around him. The spirit of Christ can compel us so strongly but we have to make that decision to fight against our flesh at every temptation and circumstantial turn

  8. iLove the Kingdom
    13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

    Once again Paul expresses his trials and tribulations hoping that it would not cause the believers in the church to despise him. We have to be mindful as well not to look down on folks because of what they are currently going through. God uses folks weaknesses and testimonies to bring him all glory.

  9. Ephesians 3: 6-7 [Amp] [ It is this] that the Gentiles are now to be fellow heirs [ with the Jews], members of the same body and joint partakers ( sharing) in the same divine promise is Christ through [ their acceptance of] the glad tidings ( the Gospel). [7] Of this ( Gospel) I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s free grace undeserved favor which was bestowed on me by the exercise of His power. It is our job to go help people understand the gospel. To teach and preach and witness to them. I pray to today that the Lord will lead them to us.

  10. 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    When I was a child I thought love came with a price. That you had to do or give something to get it in return. When I heard of Jesus I thought I have to be a really good person at all times. Then I got older life hit and I went away from God because I felt I had failed him. I struggled with the thought of EVERLASTING LOVE. How could he love me after everything I’ve done. And yet he welcomed me with open arms like The prodigal son. I couldn’t imagine I’d be here again with his love and full of his word. Thank you Lord!

  11. Ephesians 3
    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    Rooted
    Roots go deep. The definition of rooted is to
    establish deeply and firmly. As only Jesus can do in
    us. Paul said by faith and love through Jesus Christ.
    Searching the scriptures daily knowing Hus love. Each day our faith and go deeper and deeper because of the Love that Jesus shows.
    Only God that dwells in us can help us to have the Love He so wants us to have. When He I pushed out the doubt the fearthe sorrows He replaces with Love that can keep you . We have to allow His attributes go deeper and deeper into our life so that we can stay rooted.

    Colossians 2:7
    7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulnes

  12. 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
    19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
    20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
    21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

    How can we know the dimensions of his love until we are in need and see him move in our situations. Through the trials and daily events of our lives we see the many and diverse ways he moves to save, deliver, heal and provide. As Paul said his riches are unsearchable. He does more than we can ask or think so many times whether our need is great or small. He deserves the highest praise and must be shared with this world. We know He is the answer so Go share what he has done for you.

  13. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.
    Ephesians 3:18 NLT

    There’s so many things we as people struggle with on a daily basis that if we had a fuller understanding of God’s love and how rich it is we would be able to operate on a more secure level, going in boldness and walking in love in all that we do.

  14. If that isn’t love

    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
    19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    There is an older song called “If that isn’t Love”
    Vs.1
    He left the splendor of heaven
    Knowing His destiny
    Was the lonely hill of Golgotha
    There to lay down His life for me
    CHORUS:
    If that isn’t love the ocean is dry
    There’re no stars in the sky
    And the sparrow can’t fly!
    If that isn’t love then heaven’s a myth
    There’s no feeling like this
    If that isn’t love
    Vs.2
    Even in death He remembered
    The thief hanging by His side;
    He spoke with love and compassion
    Then He took him to Paradise

    The end result is salvation, but is through grace by love that we can obtain salvation. It is through the LOVE of the Heavenly Father that we may have eternal life. The only reason why we haven’t been burnt to a crisp , is because of the Love that he has for us to not be lost. Man is given the power of choice, therefore we must chose who we serve.
    In Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
    The power to chose who you will serve. Will you serve God or the enemy? God loved us so much that he robed himself in flesh to be able to reconnect us to HIM. If that isn’t love?

  15. How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
    Ephesians 3:3‭, ‬5 KJV

    If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
    James 1:5 KJV

    Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
    John 16:13 KJV

    But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
    John 14:26 KJV

    Life can be a mystery, but God has given us His Spirit so that we can have the wisdom we need to walk in certainty. If we are tuned into Him, He will teach us all things, guide us through all things, and help us to remember His love and grace in all things.

    Over a dozen times in the New Testament, God says something to the effect of, “He that hath an ear, let him hear” or “let hear what the Spirit saith.” If we are in confusion, we are not hearing Him. If we are afraid, we are not hearing Him. If we are comfortless or inconsolable, we are not hearing Him. If we are persisting in sin, we are simply not listening to His Worhimd. His voice is active, His wisdom available, His ways perfect. Learning to hear Him is the best solution to all of life’s drama.

  16. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    MORE THAN ENOUGH

    20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

    The greatest challenge to FAITH is fear, the dissolving of FAITH is unbelief. Life is filled with natural occurrences seeing with live in the natural or nature realm of creation that GOD created. By FAITH we also understand that there is a Spiritual or supernatural realm where GOD reigns alone in HIS Kingdom.

    As the church and believers we are privileged the opportunity to operate in both realms. We are born natural beings and Born Again as supernatural beings by water and Spirit.

    The challenge most believers face is that they have more faith in the natural realm than they do in the supernatural realm. More FAITH is given to what can be seen than what cannot be seen. Here is the challenge with this limited thinking.

    What is natural is limited to what can be seen. In other words, we can only operate on what we see that we have. We use fuel tank gauges, bank account balances, credit card limits, etc to operate in the natural.

    However what Paul is sharing with us here is that in the supernatural there are no gauges, balances or limits to the power of GOD. So you may have $100.00 in your bank account in the natural. But because of FAITH (Tithe, Offering, Missions, Building, Projects) giving we have resources that we are not aware of. These resources are FAITH activated and the apostle here reveals to us the “boundaries” of these limitations.

    “Exceeding Abundantly”

    not

    “Exceedingly and Abundantly”

    The difference.

    Exceeding – 5228. hyper; a primary preposition; “over”, i.e. (with the genitive case) of place, above, beyond, across, or causal, for the sake of, instead, regarding; with the accusative case superior to, more than: — (+ exceeding, abundantly) above, in (on) behalf of, beyond, by, + very chiefest, concerning, exceeding (above, -ly), for, + very highly, more (than), of, over, on the part of, for sake of, in stead, than, to(-ward), very. In the comparative, it retains many of the above applications.

    Abundantly – 1537. ek; or ex; a primary preposition denoting origin (the point whence action or motion proceeds), from, out (of place, time, or cause; literal or figurative; direct or remote): — after, among, x are, at, betwixt(-yond), by (the means of), exceedingly, (+ abundantly above), for(- th), from (among, forth, up), + grudgingly, + heartily, x heavenly, x hereby, + very highly, in, …ly, (because, by reason) of, off (from), on, out among (from, of), over, since, x thenceforth, through, x unto, x vehemently, with(-out). Often used in composition, with the same general import; often of completion.

    Over Abundantly or More Than Enough

    or

    Exceedingly -: to an extreme degree : EXTREMELY

    and

    Abundantly – existing or occurring in large amounts : AMPLE

    In conclusion:

    MORE THAN ENOUGH

    or

    Extremely Ample

    Lets seek FIRST The Kingdom of GOD and operate in the supernatural of the Power of GOD.

  17. That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
    Ephesians 3:16‭-‬19 KJV

    Paul’s prayer is all encompassing. He prays the following:
    (1) For strength in the inner man.
    (2) For indwelling faith.
    (3) For us to be rooted and grounded in love (which means we are connected to, fueled by, motivated by, and stabilized by His love. Everything we do should be done in love).
    (4) For us to understand how great God’s love is for us (how great, how deep, how wide, how high, how awesome God’s love is for us).
    (5) For us to be so full of God that His love spills out on everyone we meet.

  18. 7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

    We are all ministers – not all of us are pastors, but we all are expected to minister about the grace God has so graciously given us and what we have done with that grace.

    We live in a world that there is little hope outside of Jesus and yet we pass people everyday that don’t have the hope we do. What are we giving them?

    Thus song came to mind today.

    If the ship of your life,
    Is tossing on the sea of strife;
    You need someone.
    And if you feel so all alone,
    And your house is not a home;
    You need someone.
    If it seems life isn’t fair,
    And there’s no one left to share;
    All those lonely days and nights,
    And things just won’t turn out right;
    And you need someone to care,
    And someone to just be there;
    You need someone.

    I give you Jesus,
    He’s the peace that passes all understanding;
    I give you Jesus,
    He’s the perfect love that casteth out all fear;
    I give you Jesus,
    He’s the water that you drink and never thirst again;
    I give you Jesus, my friend,
    I give you Jesus,

    If the pressures all around,
    Keep your spirits to the ground;
    You need someone.
    And If your body is in pain,
    And your health you can’t regain;
    You need someone.
    And If at times when you have tried,
    With all the strength you had inside;
    And it seems that you have failed,
    Remember on the cross He nailed
    All the bitterness and grief,
    To give you peace and sweet relief
    He is that someone that you need.

    So I give you Jesus,
    He’s the peace that passes all understanding;
    I give you Jesus,
    He’s the perfect love that casteth out all fear;
    I give you Jesus,
    He’s the water that you drink and never thirst again;
    Oh I give you Jesus, my friend,
    I give you Jesus

    So what are we giving to those God has placed inour path to minister to? Let’s give them JESUS

  19. The Prisoner

    1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,

    2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

    Prisoners do one thing, what they are told to do. This morning I woke up and Jesus told me to go to outreach. So I am here but we keep reading…. I am not here because he made me come. I am here because he has been so gracious to me and afforded me grace when I didn’t deserve it. Although we are prisoners or slabs to the Lord, he has loosed our bonds, opened the prison gates and set us free and for that I serve him willingly. He is a good Master.

  20. Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. So please don’t lose heart because of my trials here. I am suffering for you, so you should feel honored.
    Ephesians 3:12‭-‬13 NLT
    Things happen Paul show no matter what happens don’t lose faith stay strong never give up hope
    God bless those who endure until the end

  21. 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

    19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    Our roots must be in the love of Jesus.

    It is in the roots that the tree draws it’s source of life. It is the roots that draw from the soil to supply nourishment to the tree. It is the roots that keep the plant anchored to the ground when the wind begins to blow and storms come.

    It is the love of Jesus where we receive life. It is in the love of Jesus where we find nourishment. It is in the love of Jesus that we find the strength to withstand the storms.

    Stay rooted in His love!

  22. 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

    19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

  23. “in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him. Therefore I ask that you do not lose heart at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.”
    -‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:12-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    With God, we can do the impossible. No matter how difficult the trial you’re in may seem, remember, you have the victory. That’s a fact! Moreover, God places us in situations that seem impossible to overcome so that our testimonies can grow the faith of other believers! There’s a purpose behind our difficulties. It’s gonna make us stronger in our faith and help us be better leaders.

  24. Because of Christ and our faith in him,[d] we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. 13 So please don’t lose heart because of my trials here. I am suffering for you, so you should feel honored.

    We have faith in Him because we know that He is so faithful. He’s the only one that will never let us down. So when we build that trust towards Him we can freely come to Him and He Can give us what we want like healing, peace, strength, joy, self control, etc. There is no limit with what God can do!!! Suffering and trials are excited but it’s always for the good of a believers life. We might not feel like it’s for the best but God is with us!!!

    Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 3:3-5

    In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 2 Tim 3:12

    Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

  25. According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

    12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

    13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

    14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

    15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

    19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

    21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

  26. 3:1
    I Love.To.Worship.The.Lord
    Paul is in chains in Rome but.he is not.a prisoner of the empire or restrained for.any. crime. The. Chains bind him to Jesus and he is tied to him for the sake of the Gentiles to whom he brings the Gospel

  27. That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

    Christ dwells in your heart by faith,
    Rooting you and grounding in love.
    Matt 22:37-38
    Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
    This is the first and great commandment.
    Funny how much faith and love is intertwined and how much is based on love. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    May God help grow me in both of these.

  29. Enduring the battle, trusting in God not myself.
    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love
    Irepent
    Ipray
    Ipraise
    Iseek
    Isubmit
    Iwork
    Igo

  30. How big is the love of God?

    “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:17-19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    The love of Christ is huge. For us to understand it we must undrdatand to sacrifice. We have to imagine how far we would have gone and see where we know God has taken us from.

  31. For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

    15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

    It is Gods will for us to pray for others that they may be able to comprehend Gods love. That people may experience Jesus and His love

  32. Verses 4-6 MSG “As you read over what I have written to you, you’ll be able to see for yourselves into the mystery of Christ. None of our ancestors understood this. Only in our time has it been made clear by God’s Spirit through his holy apostles and prophets of this new order. The mystery is that people who have never heard of God and those who have heard of him all their lives (what I’ve been calling outsiders and insiders) stand on the same ground before God. They get the same offer, same help, same promises in Christ Jesus. The Message is accessible and welcoming to everyone, across the board.” This Message is for everybody. We must take part and share it with all whom the Lord puts in our path.

  33. Ephesians 3:20-21
    20) Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
    21) Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

  34. 8Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people, he graciously gave me the privilege of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ.

    No matter how bad you think your past was, God can still use you. Many feel they are undeserving to serve in the Kingdom. It’s uo to encourage others to serve and they will. It’s not a right, but a privilege to serve in God’s Kingdom!
