This is why I kneel before the Father. Every ethnic group in heaven or on earth is recognized by him. I ask that he will strengthen you in your inner selves from the riches of his glory through the Spirit. I ask that Christ will live in your hearts through faith. As a result of having strong roots in love, I ask that you’ll have the power to grasp love’s width and length, height and depth, together with all believers. I ask that you’ll know the love of Christ that is beyond knowledge so that you will be filled entirely with the fullness of God. Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us; glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus for all generations, forever and always. Amen. (Ephesians 3:14-21, CEB)
The writer of Ephesians says they kneel before the Father to strengthen others.
So that those around him will be filled with the Holy Spirit and that Christ will live in their hearts through faith.
That they will have strength and be filled with love to overflowing to everyone around them.
That they will know the depth, width, and length they are loved. And they will be filled with knowledge to help in all circumstances.
Do you pray for those around you like this?
Imagine if we all prayed for the community around us like this?
We can change the world!
Let’s get to kneeling before the Father.
Loving People. Loving God.
