PAUL’S PRAYER

Ephesians 1:15-23

April 1st 2018 Easter

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

Intro – He had heard of their faith and love. Now he wanted them to understand the power of Christ’s resurrection. He prays for 3 areas of their lives. These areas of your life will only develop after you have committed yourself to the risen Savior.

I. Wisdom – means to apply knowledge.

A. Knowledge of God not based on man but the Spirit. Rom.8:16

B. When you receive the risen Savior, He places His Holy Spirit in you. Acts 2:38

C. Holy Spirit’s work is to teach us Christ and how to apply that knowledge so we have wisdom.  Jn.14:25-26, Jn.16:13-14

II. Revelation – means to expose. Eph.5:11

A. Ability to reveal is based on knowledge of Truth not extra biblical revelation. Rev.22:18, Jn.14:6

B. Knowledge comes from knowing the word of God.  Mt.13:23, Mt.7:24

C. God reveals Himself through the word.  2 Cor.4:3-4, Eph.4:17-18   

D. Revealed truth about salvation gives enlightenment and hope to the heart. Rom.8:24-25

III. Hope = anticipation.  Heb.9:28

A. You have been called to join God’s family. 2Tim.1:9, Jn.1:12

B. Because we are His, we have an inheritance.  1Pet.2:9, 1Cor.2:9  

C. It is based on power of the HS. Rom.15:13

1. Power demonstrated through the resurrection.  Rom.8:11, 1Pet.1:3

2. Power demonstrated through His saving grace.  Jn.3:3, 2Cor.5:17, Eph.4:23-24

Con. We celebrate the Lord’s resurrection because it proves we have eternal life in Christ and the power to live for Him today.
