Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 3:20


3:20 Now to him - This doxology is admirably adapted to strengthen our faith, that we may not stagger at the great things the apostle has been praying for, as if they were too much for God to give, or for us to expect from him. That is able - Here is a most beautiful gradation. When he has given us exceeding, yea, abundant blessings, still we may ask for more. And he is able to do it. But we may think of more than we have asked. He is able to do this also. Yea, and above all this. Above all we ask - Above all we can think. Nay, exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can either ask or think.

    luke 11 everyone who asks recieves. ephesians 1. sealed with the holy spirit who is the garuantee of our inheritance. so imagine asking for the Holy Spirit for 5 years knowing that in james it says that mercy triumphs over judgment. even if you are only able to ask for 2 years the rest of your life. you still did everything you could in an act of repentence. this passage gives you hope if you follow it. regards, Charles Yarbrough
