Ephesians 3

Ephesians 3 – Powerful Love

“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.” Ephesians 3:16

Life is a challenge. You have to expect many obstacles along the way. You will be tested. People will be difficult. Sadly, even your friends may abandon you during tough times.

The truth of life is that everyone experiences pain. When times are hard, depression may set in. Anger may overcome you. There is little this world can do to soothe the intense pain we experience.

Although this world may be void of comfort, God promises every believer that He will give them strength “with might through His Spirit.” The backbone of God’s strength is His perfect, eternal, and uncompromising love towards us. It’s this love that gives the child of God hope and joy; even in the darkest of times. It’s through this incredible provision where a Christian can say, “I love you, LORD; you are my strength.” (Psalm 18:1)

 

CHALLENGE

Are you going through a dark time? Does it seem as if a ray of light will never shine over you again? Are your mornings filled with sadness, your nights with tears?  Behold, God can strengthen you! God can give you hope! By His Spirit, “Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith” and you can be rooted and grounded in unconditional love.
