Discussion for Ephesians 3:16

  • Years ago I marked this scripture to meditate on it on a daily basis in prayer. There are times when as a believer you pray but you don 't know how to articulate just what to say. Today my Sister-in-Law is very ill, my brother, my nephews and niece are there for her. When I pray for her recovery, I also pray that they will see God working on behalf of all of them- "all things working together for good " and minister to their hope and encouragement in their inner man. She is a devout Christian and a deacon in her church. I don 't want them to miss that sickness and trouble happen even to 'soldiers of The Cross, ' and stay encouraged in the "inner man " because God riches and mercy cannot be exhausted.
  • Dr Augustus Sealy on Ephesians 3:16
    As the christian begins his journey of faith,he should consider the wealth of Gods smorgasbord made available to us.Even though we may see the wear and tear on and in our physical bodies,we should be extremely confident that we should not use that association as a model to the inner work God continually does in our daily walk
  • Dale Smith on Ephesians 3:16
    Each time I read this verse, I am renewed in my spirit. It is also good for introducing individuals to the Holy Scriptures as well as to the Lord our God!-Dale Smith
