Immeasurable Power!

Ephesians Chapter 1—3 Review                                                                                                      

Intro: 3 Big Themes (1:18-19)’

  • God’s Plan (what we are called to be a part of)
  • God’s People (the saints = the Church)
  • God’s Power…

What is God’s Power at work within us? (3:16; 3:20-21)

  • The Spirit’s Revelation Power (3:16; 1:17; 3:5)
    • Knowledge of God’s Plan and the love of Christ (3:18-19)

Why do we need this Power? (2:1-2)

  • Eyes of their hearts vs. the Eyes of their heads (1:17)
  • Inner being vs. Outer being (3:15)
  • God’s Temple vs. Artemis’ temple (2:20-22)

What does this Power lead to?

  • Individual to Corporate (3:16-19)
  • Glorious Church (3:20-21)

Conclusion: Know where the Power is!

  • In our prayers

  • In the Church

Questions for Reflection and Discussion:

  1. In your own words, explain the immeasurable power of God towards us as believers. How has this power worked within you personally?
  2. Think about how the rival power and spirit is at work in your own life. How easy is it to forget the Plan and all the great truths we’ve seen in Ephesians 1-3?
  3. What needs to change in your life after what we’ve seen in the first half of Ephesians? Specifically in your prayer life and your relationships with fellow saints?
