Called, sanctified by God the Father and preserved in Christ Jesus
“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height - to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen” (Ephesians 3:14-21).
Now is the time for the church to make known the manifold wisdom of God to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. Scripture says that tribulations will come… but we do not need to fear. The things that happen in our lives are happening for a reason and that reason will ultimately be manifested for our good. We are able to experience the love of Christ and to be filled with the fullness of God. Time invested in God’s word will prepare us for anything the enemy will launch against us. God’s love makes it all possible!
