We the Church: Abundant Resources

We the Church: Abundant Resources

It’s easy to buy into a scarcity mindset. We can fixate on what is lacking—in our own lives and in our church—rather than on what is always available to us in Christ. This prayer over the Ephesian church gives us language to change our view toward the abundance we have in Christ.

Ephesians 1:15-23
Ephesaians 1:15-23 / New International Version (NIV)
Thanksgiving and Prayer

15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, 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[a] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray 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 his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ 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 name that is invoked, 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.
