Ephesians 3 ~ Abundant God

on November 27, 2012

God’s plan for the church: The eternal purpose of the church is to make God’s wisdom known and for its leaders to proclaim the “unsearchable riches of Christ.”  The pastor/church who’s focus is God’s wisdom and the riches of Christ will never run out of “material” because both are found in abundance!  This is all accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit, with boldness and confidence that comes from faith in Jesus.

God’s plan for His people:  God wants us to be strengthened with power through the indwelling Holy Spirit who is guaranteed to all who believe in Jesus by faith to know His measureless, knowledge-surpassing, abundant love for us.  My pastor paraphrased this way, “Brace yourself–get ready to experience God’s love.”

Personal reflection:  It is so easy to lose sight of God’s love and think life is about our  performance.  We can do far less striving in our own strength than resting in the strength of God’s limitless love will accomplish through us!

GOD IS ABLE TO DO FAR MORE ABUNDANTLY THAN ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK! That’s my God!  All that His people accomplish in His strength is always, only for His glory! Why would we settle for less than God’s perfect plan for spreading His wisdom, grace and love! We need to ask and expect more from our God–He is longing to do it!
