About All Things New Series
We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?
Paul’s mighty prayer as written (for us) to the Ephesians:
“…that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the KNOWLEDGE of HIM.
I pray that the eyes of your HEART may be enlightened, so that you will know what is
- the hope of His calling,
- what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
- and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
- These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD” (Eph. 1:17-20 NASB).
All these glorious things—hope of His calling, the glory of His inheritance in us, the greatness of His power FOR us—are available, made possible and encompassed in the RESURRECTION power that raised Jesus from the dead.
