Letter to Ephesus (3)

Today we will look at more verses in Paul’s letter to Christians in Ephesus. In these verses Paul told the people about his prayer for them.
Paul asked God to give these people the power to be strong in their spirits. He also asked that Jesus would live in their hearts and that they would be “strong in love and built on love” (verse 17b).
Finally, Paul prayed that all God’s people would have the power to understand the “greatness of Christ’s love — how wide, how long, how high, and how deep that love is” (verse 18). Sometimes our human minds cannot understand the greatness of Jesus’ love for us. But we can understand that He loves us so much that He was willing to die for us.
When we pray for other people, we should ask God to help them understand Jesus’ amazing love. Then they, too, will receive God’s special blessings.
