Ephesians | Week 5 | In this sermon, Darrell explores the heartbeat of the Apostle Paul’s prayer for the church in Ephesus, a prayer that is expansive and full of expectancy for all believers in Jesus. Paul desires for followers of Christ to know God and to know the benefits of knowing God. Paul’s “gospel-shaped prayer” asks the Holy Spirit for wisdom to help us live in right-relationship with God and for revelation, so that the eyes of our hearts are open to perceive Jesus. Through this “double work of grace,” we come to a deeper understanding of our eternal inheritance, of how richly God has invested His glory in us, and of the transformative power at work in our lives as we pursue Jesus in the dynamic strength of the Spirit.
