Ephesians 3:14-21 as a Spiritual Exercise: #1

Green Lake, Wisconsin
Join me here for a conference in June 2013

I'm preaching this coming Sunday morning out of Ephesians 3:14-21. I'm going to post thoughts and insights about these beautiful, hope-filled words beginning today and throughout the week.

I invite you to join me, if this seems good to you.

Here's a way you can join me.

1. Write these verses on a 3X5 card and carry it with you. Pull it out often and read it... slowly. When God speaks to you, write down what he says in your spiritual journal.

2. If you like, e-mail me any insights you have on this passage. I may post some of them. 

Here's the text:

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 holy 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.
