About Lost Way Series
We search for what we do not know, driven by what we cannot recognize. What is life about? There is a way, the lost way, with answers for us all.
Ephesians 3:17b-18 AMPC
May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it].
In Ephesians, Paul begins with what God has given in Christ with the prayer that the ‘eyes of your heart’ may SEE the glorious plan of God through and in Christ. Second, Paul lays out the hopelessness of mankind, ‘dead in our transgressions,’ and that we have been made ‘alive in Christ.’ Third, he explains his own calling and message – ‘to preach the unfathomable riches of Christ.’
From this foundation, Paul prays for believers to experience the vast love of Christ.
