Sermon Notes 18 September 2022
Speaker: Mr Danny Chua / Mr Ng Zhi-Wen
Far More Abundantly
THE GOAL: to be so filled with the all-powerful God that we the church glorify Him! (3:19-21)
To KNOW how GREAT (B x L x H x D) God’s plan is! (3:18)
& to KNOW how unknowably GREAT Jesus’ love is! (3:19)
That you have STRENGTH together with all of God’s people… (3:18)
So Christ dwells in your hearts through faith… (3:17)
That His Spirit EMPOWERS you within… (3:16)
For this reason, I pray… (3:14)
Questions for Reflection and Discussion:
- What do you remember from the sermon or the passage?
- Recall some of the things or requests you have been praying for lately. What are the main things Paul prays for the church in this prayer?
- What is so great about God’s plan and Christ’s love for you? How have you come to know these in a way that “surpasses knowledge” (3:19)?
- Read the doxology in 3:20-21. Think of it as a prayer of both praise and request – that Paul asks for God to make a reality as well. Then pray it as a desire of your heart for yourself and for our church.
