INCREDIBLE POSSIBILITIES

Once we come to Christ we can never again have reason to feel ashamed, embarrassed or inferior. Christ came to retrieve us from our fallen state and to help us stand tall once again.

No wonder Paul concludes Ephesians chapter 3 with these words —

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen (3:20-21).

Let’s think about this step by step.

God is able to do what we ask.

He is able to do all we ask.

He is able to do all we ask or imagine.

He is able to do more than all we ask or imagine.

He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine!

All this is ‘according to the power that is at work within us’.

So we invite Christ to change our lives. We invite the Holy Spirit to live within us. We allow the Spirit to implement the power of God in us.

Then there is no limit to the incredible possibilities that lie before us!
