Our great God, “the Father of Glory” (Eph. 1:17), magnifies Himself through the lavish gifts of grace He pours on His people through Jesus Christ! And He designs for His people to KNOW HIM in greater and greater ways, and to KNOW the fullness of all His blessings in Christ. This is the essence of the Christian life: to know God, and to live in the full hope, wealth, and power of all His glory in Jesus.
To grow in this knowledge is how the Apostle Paul prayed for believers, and so should we pray for one another:
“…I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might…” (Eph. 1:16-19)
Oh beloved, God wants us to know and live in the fullness of our identity, security, and ability ! What a great privilege and responsibility God has given us to be “making supplication for all the saints” (Eph. 6:18), and to “speak the truth in love” (Eph. 4:15) to one another. May God help us to keep doing so….
“…until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ…” (Eph. 4:13)
Praying for you, and with you,
