Discussion for Ephesians 3

  • Brianna vs.13
    Paul was an example to the early Christians. He didn't want individuals to be discouraged by his persecution, but encouraged by his ability to continue despite pressure. This encourages me to continue to live my life as a Christian, despite the challenges that come with upholding the Bible standards. Just like Paul, we all can keep our Christian personality in a God-less world.

    In deed no limit to what our God can do. Even thou we don't deserve it.
  • David
    Ref v 19: apparently, the Apostle is encouraging us to seek a depth of love which has escaped us thus far, for he used the thought that this love "passes knowledge". What thought, action, or intellectual pursuit can "pass knowledge"??? Knowledge is required in the pursuit of understanding. My prayer is that we can pursue and acquire that deep, "perfected" love, as mentione in 1 John 3-4 chapters.
  • Rasheed
    "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think" I believe that this comment here sets the premise for who god is. Someone who is able to do and go above and beyond and well beyond that to be exact for stuff that we ask or think. That shows genuine love just as parents today try and go above and beyond for their kids to make sure they are happy and safe. "according to the power that worketh in us" I believe this part of the verse means that when we give him the praise for going above and beyond for us that we get a bit of that and we can carry that amongst us which separates true god-fearing Christians versus those who claim to Christian but act the opposite. In total I would say this verse simply knows that god is going 1000000x harder then anyone can ever go for you, but on top of that give him thanks and praise and he will share more with you.
