Ephesians 1:18-23 NIV – I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
Resurrection faith begins when our hearts are opened wide to his incomparably great power for us. I always marvel at this passage. The same mighty strength – MEGA POWER – that raised Christ from the dead LIVES IN ME! It is rooted in the Gospel of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and now active in our lives through the working of the Holy Spirit. And we experience the fullness of the Lord as the body of Christ.
Prayer: “Lord, open the eyes of my heart to your resurrection mega-power in my life today. Jesus, help me see your fullness your church. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
