BMS UpdatesVerse of the Day (July 9, 2020) 9 Jul 2020 Eduardo Marin, D.Min. Verse of the Day (July 9, 2020) #BMSeminary – Both prayers in the letter focus on power. In chapter 1 Paul asks that the Ephesians might know God’s power toward them (1:19) and in chapter 3 he asks that they might know God’s power at work within them (3:20). The reason we doubt God’s ability to do far more abundantly than “all that we ask or think” is that we grossly underestimate the power at work within us. We do not have a little 9-volt battery of spiritual power inside of us, but an entire nuclear power plant of divine might. The same power that raised Christ from the dead now indwells us by his presence and Spirit. We ought to anticipate, and request, that God will overcome big sins, change bad habits, and make us into better followers of Christ. As long as he desires to get glory through the church and in Christ Jesus, we can be sure that God, in ways that are surprising and at times imperceptible, will magnificently exceed our expectations, to his everlasting honor and our everlasting joy.
