Discussion for Ephesians 3:14

  • Anthony for verse 14
    Note that the Apostle is taking up from verse one and that the whole of verses 2-13 are a parenthesis. What is the "cause" that leads to the Apostle to his knees? That which he mentioned in chapter 2 regarding what God has done through His Grace. Blessed Grace of God.
  • To go on ones knees is an act of position. you are not standing nor are you walking or lying down. Each of these have a meaning example walking is a type of your relationship with God. bowing down on your knees is a type of worship. and notice it is not one knee but both. This notes a sold out position to God. Also this is to the Father and it is a relationship we have with God because of his son Jesus the Christ. It is through Jesus that we are able to come to the father by the blood.
