For Whose Glory?

now to him who is able to do

 

As we draw to a close with studying Chapter 3 of Ephesians, let’s take a look at verses 20 and 21. We saw yesterday how Paul prays again for the Ephesians and the contents of that prayer.  Now we see how Paul concludes that prayer with some words of great reassurances and praises.

 

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

 

Let’s have a see what these verses mean and what they mean to us.

 

 

Thoughts for Today

 

  1. How does Paul express his confidence in God in these verses?
  2. While these verses do not offer us a guarantee that we will always get what we want, what do they reassure us of?
  3. What should the response of the church be to what we have in Christ? How do we make sure that this response is at the centre of what we do?

 

Prayers for Today

 

  • How can we lift our praises to God today in the way Paul did?
  • How can we offer our lives in service to Him so that His name may be glorified?

 

Grace and Love
