Paul's Doxology of Praise to God
Bible Verse Ephesians 3:20-21
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to him be glory in the assembly in Christ Jesus unto all generations of the age of ages. Amen.
These two passages make up a doxology which is a prayer of praise to God. And together they also bring to a close the first half of Paul's letter to the Ephesians. The second half of this letter speaks primarily of the unity of the church. Because all believers come together to form a unified whole in Jesus, this is called the "body of Christ" which is the universal church. We are all children of God through Christ Jesus our Lord and therefore one family called the "body of Christ." In addition Paul also touches on Christian living. As we read these passages we learn from Paul's doxology that God can and does give us an exceedingly abundant life in Christ.
Moreover God will always do more than we can imagine and more often than not when we look back on our lives in Christ we will see more than we ever thought possible. Work done by God in such a way that it was nothing like we had planned ourselves or as limiting as we thought of our service. And more importantly when we meet the conditions Paul laid out in the previous verses of chapter three we see abundance. By turning our lives completely over to Jesus we will find there is no limit to what God can do with us and that's when our lives truly bring glory to Jesus as we live in service to God and others.
