Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 1 (day four)
Verses 18-19…I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe…are the theme verses of the book of Ephesians. Paul has written to encourage and to admonish. His prayer covered three major areas:
- For them to know the hope of His calling
- For them to know what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance
- For them to know the surpassing greatness of His power
Paul had a heart for teaching true doctrine. He wanted the churches to not only understand the truth, but also to live by it. Does knowledge of scripture make a difference in your life? Do people see the difference that Christ makes in your life? May the eyes of your heart be enlightened!
