CHRIST OUR HEAD. Ephesians 1:15–23

by Hope NY Church


Paul's prayer is for us to to know the hope, the riches of his inheritance and finally the incomparably great power of Christ! Its one thing to know about His power, but another thing to know His power. We very much need to feel & experience the power of God, the sovereign power of God as we study the scriptures together looking at the different characters in the bible. Do we make our own plans and our fall or rise is totally due to our decisions? Or is there another force at work which eventually bring everything together in accordance to His will, rather than human's will and plan? Is Christ the head? And what is that in our lives and the world we live in?

15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe.That power is like the working of his mighty strength, 20 which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
