Re:Verse passage – Ephesians 3:14-21 (day two)

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, Vs. 14

Bow (14) – repent, submit                                                                                                   He would grant (16)…to be strengthened                                                                 That Christ may dwell (17)                                                                                                   So, you may comprehend (18)                                                                                         And know the Love of Christ (19)…and be filled

Where does it all begin? It begins with a submitted and repentant heart. The wonder and majesty that follow vs. 14 are predicated on a heart that cannot receive blessings if filled with confusion, distraction, and sin. Paul is demonstrating this process on behalf of the people of Ephesus, but the script is the same for an individual believer. Want to be filled with the goodness of God? Want to enter into a relationship that exceeds anything that you have ever imagined? Begin with an attitude of repentance.
