Day 5: God’s Immeasurable Love and Faithfulness

Friday, May 21st, 2010

Ephesians 3:14-21

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

God’s power continues to work in the church today. This power is available for His people to live this incredible life that we’ve been called to together! The Lord has called us for a purpose that is far greater than we could have ever imagined.

Response: Pray through this passage, taking the time to reflect and dwell on each idea that is expressed in Paul’s prayer. Pray this passage not only for yourself but also for your church community. Because of God’s immeasurable love and faithfulness, we together as His church will see God answer this prayer.
