THE FULNFSS OF GOD - By Robert E. Hanna

By Robert E. Hanna

Scripture Reading: Ephesians 3:16-19

The prayers of Paul display the depth of his burden and  dedication to his ordained office as minister and revelator of  the Gospel of the grace of God. He prayed selflessly and  passionately for the saints as has no other man of God. Among  the greatest of his petitions before the throne is that which is  recorded in the passage of our text. His plea expressed the  desire "that He would grant you, according to the riches of His  glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner  man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye,  being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to  comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length,  and depth, and height, and to know the love of Christ, which  passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness  of God."

God's Holy Spirit dwells within us. Christ lives in us. It  remains only for us to yield ourselves and our lives to the  uttermost. "Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding  what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine,  wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit" (Ephesians  5:17, 18). Our focus must ever remain on Christ, "For in Him  dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are  complete in Him, which is the Head of all principality and  power" (Colossians 2:9, 10). "Set your affection on things  above, not on things on the earth" (Colossians 3:2). Complete  in Him! "Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory  through our Lord Jesus Christ" (l Corinthians 15:57).

" ... We are more than conquerors through Him that loved  us" (Romans 8:37). "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in  the Spirit" (Galatians 5:25).
