That Your Joy may be Full
A Sermon on Ephesians 3:14-20
Prayer for Spiritual Strength
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, (ESV)
Our failure to grasp God's purpose for us; the importance of systematic reading of the Scripture; and prayer; Christ dwells in our heart by faith; a knowledge of Christ within; we must declare this experience.
