For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power 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, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Food For Thought:
The line that stands out to me in this passage of Scripture is, “Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than we can ask or imagine.” This is a line of praise for all the amazing ways that God has worked in the life of the writer and in the lives of God’s people. Think about the amazing ways that God has worked in your life and praise God for that.
Holy Wisdom, God of abundant life, you call us to the banquet of your love. We find you in the gifts you give; we know you in the ones with whom we share this holy food, and in the bread of this table, your son, Jesus Christ. Grant that we may be bread for others, as he is bread for us. Amen.
