My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less
v.17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better.
v. 18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints,
v.19 and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength,
v.20 which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms,
v.21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
v.22 And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church,
v.23 which is His body, the fullness of HIm who fills everything in every way.
I love the picture, I love this passage of scripture. I want to know Him more-Lamb and Lion. He lives! A blessed hope-filled resurrection!
