Calling confirmed!

Pray that from his glorious unlimited resources he will empower you through inner strength through his Spirit

Paul’s prayer for God’s people…

Ephesians 3:10 – 21

How do you know you’re called by God? Simply when, Christ takes hold of you, something special takes place! We learn to trust HIm as (17) he moves in and make His home in our hearts.
I guess though the hardest thing in all this is the ‘letting go’ —

Letting go of things that as we receive Christ into our hearts, are contrary to the things of the Spirit —

  • idle chatter
  • gossip
  • sexual promiscuity
  • swearing & inappropriate language
  • selfish motives
  • own status

Well, that is just a few. the key here in this chapter is in v18 — “To know how deep…. wide… long… high… is His love” ponder that for a moment – If Christ truly reigns in our heart, we learn to trust him by receiving more and more revelation everyday of His love for us!!!!

v19 Paul’s prayer is that we experience something of this great love, to know a real satisfying, rewarding awareness that life is complete!

V20, the consequence of this trust we are learning through His love poured into our hearts is together with Christ to do imeasurably more through his mighty power at work within us! Wow!

And finally, because of this your calling is confirmed, to do great things! — Remember to Pass it On!
