Ephesians 1:15-23

Bible Reference:  Ephesians 1:15-23

We live in a world with an incredible desire for "wisdom".

But the world doesn't take notice of God.   We live in this world for a period of time.  We know the end result for our life.  The world doesn't know.

Devil - meddler.  He meddles in the world and causes problems.

God promises wisdom to His people.  We are to show love of God to others;  not on our own strength.

God gives us insights;  we have to humble ourselves and ask.

Ephesians 1:15

The truth that God uses is absolute.  Eg "do not steal"...ie this  can include thoughts / writings/things.

Ephesians sets up authority in Church; every believer comes up to full stature in Christ.  

v22 Jesus Christ is Head over all things for the church.  Not an organization or a people.  

Christ is the head and if he is not ruler of church, then why are we here?  It's unfortunate that in churches today people have relationship with Pastor and his/her love is not great enough.   It has to be the Lord.  The Lord has love enough - people are not Jesus.

Every blessing we have should come from the Head ie Jesus!

How do you use the power and authority he gives us in our life?

People are looking for something.   Wisdom and revelation of God.  

We are human beings not human doings.   God just wantsto be with us. 

Romans  1 - put time aside to worship God.   Don't need to run programs.   Just spend time with God in worship together. 

Paul practiced prayer for others, be an intercessor for others - leaders, fellow believers,  lost, lonely etc.

Pray for people;  tell them that God loves them.

Seek God's wisdom and seek a closer relationship with Him.
