Passage: Ephesians 3:14~21  

Keyverse: 17a

1. So that Christ may dwell in your hearts (14-17a)

Paul had two prayer topics for his Ephesian brothers and sisters. In his prayer, Paul revealed two very important aspects of Christian life. The first prayer topic was that God may strengthen the Ephesian Christians through the Holy Spirit. When they had the Holy Spirit, they would come to have Christ dwelling in their hearts, through faith. As Christians we need Christ to dwell in our hearts. This should be one of our prayer topics.

2. Rooted and established in love (17b-21)

The second prayer topic Paul had for the Ephesian Christians was that they may be rooted and established in the love of Christ. The love of Christ is unlike any other love. It is wider, deeper, longer and higher than any love we have ever experienced. We cannot know this love on our own. It isn't like human love. The love of Christ surpasses all human knowledge! To know Christ's love is to know the measure of all the fullness of God.

Prayer: Lord, may Christ dwell in my heart. May I come to know deeply the love of Christ in my heart.

One Word: May Christ dwell in my heart
