*Ephesians 3:22-21 (Saturday)*
"Now to him who by the power that is working within us is
able to do far beyond all that we ask or think, to him be
the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all
generations, forever and ever. Amen."
The power of Him that is working in us is both our faith,
which He is growing, and the Holy Spirit through Whom He is
God is without limit - something we finite humans really
have to struggle to fully comprehend.
We are challenged by Paul to be honest in our prayers to God
because He is able "...to do far beyond all that we ask or
"... in the church" refers to the believers - which is the
only place on earth that God chooses to display His glory
and through whom His glory is reflected.
"... the church" existed before buildings and denominations
and programs and it continues to exist, uniquely defined
(Biblically) apart from those things.
"... in Christ Jesus" the glory of God is displayed
generation after generation and forever.
*Consider* the meaning - to you - of a familial relationship
with the God of endless power and timeless existence.
*Discuss* the ways that we may partner with God in faith to
be conduits of His glory to others.
*Reflect* upon God's reassurance, through Paul, that we need
hold nothing back as God can and will do far more than "...
all that we ask or think"
*Share* an example of God going beyond your prayers.
*Truth in Action*
Today I will thank God for this prayer of Paul, I will read
it several times today, and I will say say Amen & Amen! I
will also share it with a fellow believer and we will
celebrate God together.
*Be Specific* _________________________________
