Ephesians 3 has many sections in it that are dear to me and encourage my heart. I have been choosing just a few parts from each chapter to write about. Today what is on my mind are these two portions: strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man…, and the love of Christ passes all knowledge.
Another prayer of Paul’s for us Christians
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, …That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man:…(Ephesians 3:14, 3:16 (june 28th,2011).

Paul is our example on how to please God, so we can pray this too. Ephesians 3:19 is one of the most “stand out” parts of this chapter for me personally. It shows me that the love of Christ, passes all knowledge, and that we can be filled with the fulness of God. Does this sound nutty to some people? It would if a person isn’t in Christ, and doesn’t want God in his life. For the christian who wants God, it isn’t nutty, it is encouraging and brings a person closer to their Saviour.
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians 3:18-19
