S-Ephesians 3:7-13English Standard Version (ESV)
7 Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s grace, which was given me by the working of his power.8 To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9 and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things, 10 so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. 11 This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we haveboldness and access with confidence through our faith in him. 13 So I ask you not to lose heart over what I am suffering for you, which is your glory.
O- PREPARATION Paul is setting forth perimeters where by we can have access to the promises in Christian through His Word. All this by His gift of GRACE . He feels himself to be totally unworthy for the mystery to be his . Given boldness such as only can come from Devine revelation that he is saying here is ours too. God’s eternal purposes being made known to us according to Christmas Jesus our access.
A-AM I AMAZED that Jesus saved me? I want to stay completely amazed that Jesus saved me. When I get to heaven I want to be amazed that I my there. Awesome Father of Love revealed to me and to think that even the angels are impressed with this amazing fact as it is revealed in my life by the Power of Christ.
Prayer- Father I do not feel in the remotest qualified to reveal anything to an angel in heaven. How shallow my life has been please Father forgive me and help me to live in the truth that your Holy Word shares let it sink deep into my heart that my life would begin at this moment to reveal the truth of Who you are in Love. Your LOVE which is the foundation of everything. We should trust You and not lose heart that we would be aware of the MYSTERY of Who You are and what You are capable of doing with us under pressure. Oh may I be cleansed and made whole by this working of Your WORD in me.
