Faith, Love, Hope: Thoughts on Ephesians‬ ‭1:15-19‬‬‬

“This is why, since I heard about your FAITH in the Lord Jesus and your LOVE for all the saints,

[Faith can’t be trusted until it is evidenced by Love for others.]

I never stop giving thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.

[Not just wisdom, revelation and knowledge, but the Spirit of those things. The oil based presence of God that diffuses in and through you well after His revealing.]

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you may know what is the HOPE of his calling,

[Hope is that spiritual spice that changes the whole meal God serves us. It is the dessert of the spiritual dinner, and the byproduct of Faith working through Love. No dessert until you finish the meat and veggies of faith and love.]

…what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the mighty working of his strength.”
