We the Church: Filled to Fullness

We the Church: Filled to Fullness

We all know what it feels like to run on empty. Is it possible that God’s fullness could meet every perceived gap – in our church and in our personal lives? The church building may be empty, but God offers fullness to His people. This prayer from Ephesians shows us the way.

Ephesians 3:14-21
Ephesians 3:14-21  /  New International Version (NIV)

A Prayer for the Ephesians

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 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, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.


[a] The Greek for family (patria) is derived from the Greek for father (pater)
