Ephesians 3 Part 3 – Prayer for the Outworking of The Mystery!
In Ephesians 1 Paul prayed his 3 “what” prayer. In Ephesians 3:16-19 he prayed his 4 “that” prayer. This was the prayer that he began putting together in Eph.3:1, until he had flashbacks of things to include in his prayer. Eventually he got around to praying this prayer which God the Father was surely willing to grant. All of this was based on Paul’s wonder and amazement at God’s unmeasurable love, which he couldn’t really give dimensions to! It is “So high you can’t get over it, so low you can’t get under it, so wide you can’t get round it, oh wonderful love!” All of these expressions of God’s love and mercy bring glory to God. Therefore, any theology that doesn’t give God all the glory (Soli Deo Gloria) is surely questionable. We believe that Salvation is ALL of God (See Eph.2:8-9), and give “Glory to God Alone!”
