I’m extremely excited for this upcoming devotional, but before I dive into it, I would like to thank everyone who has been reading my devotionals from the start. I hope you’ve been enjoying them and that they are adding to your Christian experience. I also would like to thank every person who calls VLC home. I am blessed to be called your Pastor and pray your lives are being enriched on a weekly basis.
Ephesians 3:20-21 (ESV)
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
This my friends is talking about you. God’s very power – Holy Spirit anointed power surgeing through you. This power is greater than any force known to man and I for one want to be intimately entwined with it. Also, this verse says, “to Him be the glory in the church”. Who’s the church? You and I. Every born again follower of Christ is the church. Well then, did you catch the “in the” part? God’s glory is “in the” church. Who’s the church? You! And the Bible says, “in the” church God’s glory resides. Wow! In lil’ole you and I the glory of almighty God rests. My prayer then for you is that you would catch this. Like grab ahold of it and see it as yours. Will you do that? Will you take God’s Word at face value and accept it for what it is?
