Paul's Prayer and Blessing for All Believers Part III

Bible Verse Ephesians 3:16-19

That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Commentary:

The Holy Spirit applies to all believers the personal presence of God in our lives. A presence which is real and felt by all believers as the Holy Spirit indwells all of us who have placed our faith in Christ Jesus our Lord. This is because the Holy Spirit is working out the process of sanctification in our lives whereby we grow in Christ. The result of this sanctification is a supernatural love which grows stronger in us as we grow in the knowledge of Jesus and His word. As a result we now have a new love for Christ, a love for God, a love for His church and a love for others especially the lost.

This supernatural love which can now be found in us is a natural outcome of living a life of faith in Christ. A faith which produces fruit in our lives pleasing to God and helpful to others. From this love we produce good works as a result of the Holy Spirit's work inside of our hearts. And as we grow in Christ and we have a continuing trust in His lordship over our lives we grow in fruitfulness for God. Because as we mature in our faith the Holy Spirit lays down an ever growing foundation of love in us. A foundation built on Christ which produces a self-giving and people-serving love for God, love for His church and love for the Lost.

Strengthen by the Holy Spirit

2nd Corinthians 4:7

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

Trust in Christ and Grow

Ephesians 3:16-17

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 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.

Things of God Confuse the World

1st Corinthians 1:26-27

Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world's eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.

Lives Changed by Jesus

Acts 4:13

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.

Stay Strong in the Lord

2nd Corinthians 4:1-2

Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart, but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

God Examines Our Hearts

1st Thessalonians 2:3-4

For our exhortation does not come from error or impurity or by way of deceit; but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts.

Power of the Holy Spirit

1st Corinthians 2:4-5

My message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

Preach Only Christ Crucified

1st Corinthians 2:1-3

And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling.

We Are Bond-Servants of Christ

2nd Corinthians 4:5

For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus' sake.

Serve Christ in Humility

Philippians 2:3-4

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

Goodness Belongs to the Lord

Psalm 86:5

For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.
