Lectio – Ephesians 3:16-21

June 12, 2012

Ephesians 3 & 4 have been coming around again and again recently for me, and I thought I’d like to share passages that have spoken to me with you.

The first of these is Ephesians 3:16-21 where Paul prays for the church, for increasing spiritual wisdom and also for spiritual maturity.

This passage has a lot in in and it is well worth taking time to really think about it. reflecting on what God is saying about himself, what he is saying about the church, and what he is saying to you directly.  Please take the time and wait in this passage, let it minister to you today…

Ephesians 3:16-21

16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
